The Turning Point Bursary for Visual Artists 2022

Appli­ca­tions are now open for the Turn­ing Point Bur­sary for Visu­al Artists, pre­vi­ous­ly known as the Tal­ent Devel­op­ment Bursary.

The Turning Point Bursary programme acts a springboard to extend existing interests and explore new territories by enabling visual artists to propose a development project that is responsive to their needs, aligned with their practice, ambition, career position and long-term goals.

We’re inviting visual artists at a turning point in their artistic career to propose and carry out a 6 month programme of activity to develop their practice. Previous projects selected have involved testing out new ideas and experimentation, creating or developing new work, mentoring and gaining skills and knowledge.

There are 8 places available on the 2022 programme, with the bursary open to individual artists, collaborations and collectives, though only one bursary will be awarded per application. This is a 1 stage application, and all applicants can book an optional 1-to-1 application support session with Artist Development Officer, Mary Cork, in advance of submitting.

Deadline for proposals - Monday 6th June 9am
