Open call

EBC Day School 22/23

east bris­tol con­tem­po­rary are pleased to announce a sec­ond year of their alter­na­tive arts edu­ca­tion strand for Bris­tol; DAY SCHOOL.

Seeking participants for the day school’s new cohort (August 2022-July 2023). This year also includes the introduction of x3 full bursaries!

Day School offers artists a shared studio space alongside monthly education days with guest artists, support and advice for work and careers, and other professional development opportunities, community projects and social occasions.
invited guest artists/professionals are drawn from ebc’s diverse network, and reflect the many different artistic practices represented in the UK. Day School is an inclusive and welcoming environment, and the artists we work with are selected with these values in mind.
the school is both committed to the idea of alternative education as a meaningful response to the current climate of UK arts provision and educational institutions, and the opportunity to see the arts encouraged and thriving in the amazing city of Bristol.
“great opportunity to meet people, challenge your ideas and may help change the direction of your practice”
“a playful place to try new methods and ideas and learn from an eclectic range of inspiring artists”
