Arts Council Bursary awards – deadlines announced

The Arts Council is offering the following Bursary awards with a deadline of 5.30pm on Thursday 12 July 2012:

The Arts Council provides Bursary awards in order to assist individual artists in the development of their art practice. The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development that is derived from a focused period of engagement with their practice. The award therefore provides artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their art practice.

Guidelines for each award are published on the available fundingsection on our website.

Applicants must register in advance and submit their applications through the Arts Council’s online services website.
