Now in its second edition, these bursaries 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 receives mentoring from the Jerwood Visual Arts team and is part of a peer-network, attending facilitated sessions as a group.
Applicants are asked to be ambitious and are selected on the basis of how much developmental impact the opportunity is likely to have on their practice, the feasibility of the project within the given budget and the need for the proposed activity to take place.
In 2018 12 artist bursaries of £1000 were awarded to Jessica Ashman, Henry Bradley, Liam Crichton, Freya Dooley, Jamie George, Keira Greene, Jasleen Kaur, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Rhea Storr, Mariam Syed and Tom Varley.
Selectors: Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts; Oliver Fuke, Gallery Manager, Jerwood Visual Arts; and Katie Schwab, artist.
