Event Description

Artsadmin’s Artists' Bursary Scheme has been running since 1998 and has supported over 150 artists working individually or collaboratively in Live Art. The 2012 Bursary Scheme is generously supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

The scheme supports artistic experiment, risk, speculation and play, rather than the production or touring of finished work. It offers time to explore processes and try out new ideas within a framework of constructive and critical dialogue. Artsadmin's intention is to offer timely support to artists who would value a period to delve into the new, without pressure to produce a final result. The bursary is not a commission or production grant but a package of support oriented towards research and process that can be used flexibly according to each artist’s needs.

The scheme is open to UK-based artists working in interdisciplinary and experimental performance, who have been making work for up to and no more than eight years. Applicants must have an identified area of research they are passionate to pursue, and whose practice would benefit from consolidated time to experiment individually or collaboratively.

A number of artists who first came into contact with Artsadmin through the Bursary Scheme are now managed by our producers, such as Anne Bean, Helen Paris and Mem Morrison. Several associate artists, to whom long-term advocacy and strategic support are offered, are former bursary artists. They include Stacy Makishi, Robin Deacon, The Vacuum Cleaner and Lucy Cash. The great majority continue to make and show work nationally and internationally to a wide range of audiences.
