We are now accepting applications for the Open Studio Bursary 2021. This is an award open to new or emerging artists. There are no fees.

Application for the bursary is open to anyone over the age of 18 and includes assistance in setting up your studio, 1 years’ inclusion on the Open Studios scheme & a £250 award to help with your preparations to take part. Ideally you should have your own space to show, but if not we will try and help you find a location to show within our catchment area.

The process is simple. Send one email including a CV and a statement about your work to the following email. The email must include 5 images of your recent work (within the past 12 months). Please make sure the images are in focus and are of a good resolution. All images must include your name in the file. If you win, you will require a minimum of 20 works to be shown in July and you should be prepared to be open for at least 6 of the Open Studio days.

If you are applying to join Open Studios for 2021 we are planning for a return to an art trail which is as close to our normal event as it can be. Please be aware that the health of our artists and visitors must take top priority so we cannot guarantee at this stage exactly what format Open Studios will take.

Please use this email if you have any questions and to submit your application. Your application for the Open Studio bursary should be submitted by 31st December 2020.
