Artist in Residence Grants
Offering up to £15,000 to enable a UK university or museum to foster a creative collaboration with an artist working in a discipline outside the usual curriculum of the host department. Applications must be made by the host institution – artists may not apply to the Trust directly. The scheme is now closed until spring 2014.
These awards support the residency of an individual artist in a UK institution in order to foster a creative collaboration between the artist and the staff and/or students of that institution. The term ‘artist’ encompasses visual artists, creative writers, musicians, poets and other producers of original creative work. The scheme is intended to bring artists into research and study environments where their artistic form or creative art is not part of the normal curriculum or activities of the host department. It is not the objective of the residency to provide additional teaching capacity. Priority will be given to new collaborative ventures.
Important changes to the Artist in Residence Grants scheme.
In April 2014, we are going to re-launch the Artist in Residence Grants Scheme. Before we can do this, we need to finish processing all the outstanding applications. To give us time to do this properly, we stopped accepting new outline applications on 28 November 2013.
