Jerwood Visual Arts are offering twelve bursaries providing an opportunity for artists to define and determine their own development needs.

Visual artists within 10 years of graduating or establishing their practice are invited to apply for a bursary of £1,000 for the development of their practice. This could be for the costs of making new work or exploring a new collaboration, mentoring, professional or skills based training, travel or a combination of these. There is no application fee.

Now in its second year, the project aims to encourage experimentation and provide an opportunity for artists to define and determine their own development needs. Through these bursaries Jerwood Visual Arts would like to support activity which it may be hard to find specific funding for elsewhere, a specific piece of work or idea which may or may not have a tangible outcome. Each selected artist will receive mentoring from the Jerwood Visual Arts team and be part of a peer-network, attending facilitated sessions as a group.

Selectors: Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts; Oliver Fuke, Gallery Manager, Jerwood Visual Arts; and Katie Schwab, artist.

Deadline: Monday 4 December 2017.
