The Bursary programme will support 2 successful applicants to develop and progress their creative practice over 12 months.

The programme will be tailored to the individual artist/maker and will include mentoring which may lead to the development of skills/training, creation of new work, presenting and marketing work.

Successful applicants will be awarded £1,500 as a bursary with a further budget available for any identified additional support that may be needed.
