A bursary programme for visual artists to Re:view their practice, Go and See visits and New Collaborations -deadlines vary-
In 2013, a-n launched what proved to be a timely portfolio of professional development bursaries, offered exclusively to artist members. Designed to be as light touch as possible, this scheme has already received 258 applications seeking nearly £165,000 of funding, perhaps identifying a level of genuine need currently not being met by existing artists’ support schemes.
Deadlines and details of bursaries:
20 January 2014 – Re:view bursaries: designed to support artist-to-artist or curatorial critique and professional development at strategic points in artists’ careers, providing them with opportunities to take stock and inform development of future work.
17 February 2014 – Go and see bursaries: specifically for artists working collectively and through artists’ initiatives. The bursaries enable artists to visit other initiatives, to improve communication and knowledge exchange, and foster joint developments.
18 March 2014 – New Collaborations: supporting artists’ critical and artistic development through buying time to research into new collaborations.
