Artists bursaries - a-n The Artists Information Company
a-n is inviting applications for its Writer Development Programme 2017-18, which will run from August 2017 to March 2018.
In response to a call out earlier this year that sought proposals exploring how artists and artists’ groups adapt to navigate turbulent cultural and political landscapes, six artist-led groups have been awarded bursaries to develop their research.
43 a-n Artist members have been awarded bursaries to support self-devised professional development projects, while 24 artists receive awards to travel and develop networks and opportunities outside the UK.
10 a-n Artist members have been awarded bursaries to attend the preview of Venice Biennale 2017 in May, and a further 13 members will travel to Kassel, Germany, in June to attend the press and professionals preview of Documenta 14.
