SPACE Artist Awards


SPACE will award 18 x £5,000 to talented visual artists who are under-represented in the art world and those suffering from extreme financial hardship, to help progress their practice at this very challenging time. Artists must be in the first 10 years of practising, post-higher education. 12 artists will each receive £5,000 to support the next stage of their practice. 3 artists will each receive £5,000 plus a 12-month rent free studio in Hackney, Colchester or Ilford. 3 artists will each receive £5,000 and will also be invited to advise on programmes at SPACE. All awardees will receive mentoring support, including a group mentoring session and from the Artist Development team in the form of individual 1-2-1s. Only artists who live or work in boroughs where we have studios can apply
