Deadline Thursday 07 February 2019

Devon Artist Network is delighted to announce its annual Emerging Artist Bursary scheme, which supports new and emerging artists taking part in Devon Open Studios in September. 

The Emerging Artist Bursary aims to nurture and encourage new talent to take the next steps in their career by helping to fund their participation in this prestigious annual open studios event.

The bursaries are aimed at those taking their first steps into professional arts practice, returning to creative practice after a career break or change, or currently taking their art in a new direction. Applicants must be based in Devon and have registered for Devon Open Studios 2019. Any art form will be considered.

Successful applicants will receive a bursary covering their entry fees for Devon Open Studios. One of the bursary winners will be selected for The Joanna Radford Award and receive a further £150 towards materials.

Application is by email and should include a CV and letter of up to 500 words outlining:

1. What aspect of your practice makes you eligible for an Emerging Artist Bursary. 

2. What you hope to achieve during Devon Open Studios 2019.

3. How an Emerging Artist Bursary will help you to achieve this.

4. Your professional and artistic objectives for the next two years.


In addition to the above information, you will need to submit three images to support your application (images to be emailed or link provided to a relevant website).

Applications to Claire Binden, Devon Open Studios Coordinator, at [email protected] to arrive by Monday 1st April 2019. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of April.
