Open Call: Make Room

Website: https://www.whitehouseart.org/make-room

Make Room is a new creative development programme at The White House designed to make room for new voices and ideas in our programme, supporting under-represented groups to have agency within the arts and their communities. There are currently two opportunities open for applications:

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.

Applicants should be an individual artist, collective or group who work, live or study in Barking and Dagenham or neighbouring boroughs of Havering, Redbridge and Newham and are over the age of 18. Applications are particularly encouraged for artists from groups that are under-represented in the arts to apply, for example artists with Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage, those who are facing barriers due to difficult socio-economic situations and those who identify as LGBTQ+ or have disabilities, please make this clear when applying, if applicable.
