How do I apply?
Applications can be made by email. Deadline: 31st January 2023
Please send a single PDF or word document. We also welcome audio or video applications of 12 minutes or less. If you want to apply in a format we haven’t mentioned please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
- We’d like to see your work - Send us links to your work/ images.
We would prefer to view your material online where possible. Websites/ Audio/Video hosting sites and indicate what you want us to look at along with any required passwords.
- Direct us to a CV online if you have one, or send one.
- What would you like to get out of the programme? (what do you want to do?) Why is this opportunity useful at this stage of your practice?
Tell us about your ambitions, how can the programme help meet these. Written statements only need to be approximately 300 words.
- About you
This is where you can tell us a little about you, if there’s anything to add. Are there any specific access requirements you want to make us aware of, and/ or childcare or care of dependents costs. You don’t have to explain why, or justify any request for support, we are open to discussing and finding the right support for you.
We are currently prioritising artists who may have been excluded or discriminated against or who otherwise face the consequences of past or present discrimination or disadvantage. Research shows that those from lower socio-economic backgrounds face additional barriers in the visual arts. If you want us to take any of this into account, please let us know. You do not need to include details about your personal circumstances and will not be called on for ‘proof’. (200 words.)
Send everything to:
email@example.com with the subject header:
You will then receive an auto confirmation and a link to a separate, optional, equality monitoring form. If you are submitting your application as an audio or video recording, please email a link rather than an attachment. If this is difficult, get in touch. No assessment of the production quality of audio or video recordings will be made but your responses must be clear so that the panel can understand them.
