|DOS Emerging Artist Bursaries|
Date Posted: 25 January 2012
Once again this year Devon Artist Network is proud to offer its Emerging Artist Bursary scheme to encourage new and emerging artists to take part in our annual Devon Open Studios event in 2012.
The Emerging Artist Bursary aims to nurture and encourage new talent to take the next steps in their career by helping to fund their participation in this prestigious annual open studios event. We are grateful to our key sponsor, Helpful Holidays, for funding this initiative which will support five emerging artists living and working in Devon.
The bursaries are aimed at those taking their first steps into professional arts practice, returning to creative practice after a career break or change, or taking their art in a new direction. Applicants must be based in Devon - any art form will be considered.
Application is by email and should include a CV and letter of up to 500 words outlining:
1. What you hope to achieve during Devon Open Studios 2012.
2. How an Emerging Artist Bursary will help you to achieve this.
3. Your professional and artistic objectives for the next two years.
In addition to the above information, you will need to submit three images to support your application (images to be emailed or link provided to a relevant website).
Applications to Claire McLaughlin, Devon Open Studios Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive by 1st March 2012. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of March. Successful applicants will receive a bursary of £100 towards their entry fees for Devon Open Studios.
