Bursary & Mentoring Support for Artists & Makers

Chrysalis Arts is launching a two-year programme for Artists & Makers to support two areas of professional development: – emerging talent in early career artists and / or – new skills and artistic innovation in Rural and Green Arts Practice

This is a major opportunity for artists to develop their practice and professional careers in a supportive and collaborative context.

Participants will be awarded bespoke mentoring support and collaborative learning opportunities whilst simultaneously being supported to develop and implement a new project. This could include a residency, social engagement project or the creation of a new body of work for professional presentation. Audience engagement is required as a key component of each project. Funding is available to cover the cost of materials, research, travel, production, documentation, audience engagement etc.

Applicants may apply at any stage until 31 July 2018. There is no age restriction on applicants.
