What We Do

We work with professional artists across art forms, offering project and programme funding and remaining close to our work and partnerships. Our support prioritises the development of talented and dedicated individuals at transitional stages of their careers, and is delivered primarily through partnerships with outstanding arts organisations throughout the UK.
We spend around £1.5m a year, and are active in identifying and creating new projects. We seek to influence tangible, long term impact through supporting the professional development of artists and organisations, and the strategic development of art forms and our sectors. In addition to working with external partners we also develop and deliver Jerwood Visual Arts, a contemporary gallery programme of awards, exhibitions and events at Jerwood Space, London, and on tour.
The majority of our partnerships and initiatives are proactively sought and developed, however we do accept unsolicited proposals. Please note that we very rarely fund projects which are put forward in this way. We will be looking for specific, targeted, tangible opportunities with clear issues or questions behind them in the work that we take on.
Please visit our Funding pages for more details and how to apply.
