Studio Bursaries provide free dedicated studio space, access to one-to-one mentoring and a travel stipend of £500, with the aim of helping to alleviate the financial constraints of art making and widen access to opportunities within the arts.

Project Bursaries of £500 to provide support to develop and test a creative idea that responds to your local community with positive change at its core, with the aim of developing new approaches to community-led programming.
