Jerwood Makers Open Call

Jerwood contacted us the other day to promote their 2011 search launched by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation for designers and makers to our talented members, workshop hirers and blog readers.

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!

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
