A-N Bursary Award: ‘Time, Space, Money’
I am delighted to have been awarded a bursary from A-N
174 artists based throughout the UK have been awarded a share of £250,456.83 to fund their professional development. In the latest round of bursaries, Artists Bursaries 2021: Time Space Money, awards of £500-£1,500 were offered to a-n Artist members and Joint (Artist and Arts Organiser) members to support the continuation of artistic practice and to help alleviate the financial pressures that may have arisen through the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The bursaries will be used to fund a wide range of professional development activity enabling recipients to learn new skills, undertake research trips, build networks within and outside of the visual arts and rethink or pivot their practice to develop it in a new way. Aimed at supporting artists through a challenging time, Artists Bursaries 2021: Time Space Money received 683 applications from a-n members.
a-n Artists Bursaries: Time Space Money launched in March 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, as an iteration of a-n’s annual bursary programme. To date, a-n has distributed £727,816.09 through this programme to 543 artists whose livelihoods have been impacted.
