This is a fantastic new opportunity to support and showcase emerging makers in applied arts. With an annual exhibition, the four bursaries offered will give the chosen makers a chance to create ambitious new work.
Jerwood Makers Open begins in 2011 and will run for up to three years. Each year, four bursaries of £7,500 will be awarded to makers submitting proposals for new work or works. These works will then be exhibited in a group show as a key part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme at Jerwood Space, London. Makers will be selected by Emmanuel Cooper, potter, writer, educator and critic; Siobhan Davies, choreographer and artistic director; Jonathan Watkins, curator, writer and Director of Ikon Gallery.
Applications are open to artists who are within 10 years of graduating or setting up their practice and from the broad spectrum of making disciplines.
We strongly encourage you to put your best creative foot forward and apply online here or to find further information.
The deadline for applications is 21 Feb 2011. Good luck!
