Artists' Bursary Scheme

 

Artsadmin’s Artists' Bursary Scheme has been running since 1998 and has supported over 200 artists working in contemporary performance practices.

We are delighted to launch the next round of the Artists' Bursary Scheme, made possible with support from Arts Council England, Live Art UK Diverse Actions programme and generous individual donations to Artsadmin.

More about the Bursary Scheme

This year, the Bursary scheme will offer a maximum of six bursaries to UK-based artists at any stage in their career working in live art, contemporary performance and interdisciplinary practice. At least three of these Bursaries will be awarded to Artists of Colour as part of Live Art UK’s Diverse Actions programme.
