Swansea University Cultural Institute – Creativity Fellowships 2019/20

Website: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/cultural-institute/creativity/creativity-fellowships/

Launching in October 2019, the Cultural Institute at Swansea University is offering two Creativity Fellowships for professional artists of any practice/medium (including but not limited to writers, visual artists, performers, makers, musicians) to create a new work inspired by cutting-edge academic research at the university. Each 12-month fellowship includes a stipend of £10,000 (plus travel and accommodation expenses of up to £1200) paid in three installments across the fellowship year. The Creativity Fellows will each engage with a specific research project, collaborating with the lead academic and their team to create a new work of art to be delivered, performed/exhibited in the December following the fellowship period. The Creativity Fellows will also be expected to hold at least 3 public work-in-progress sessions in Swansea with the lead academic of their chosen research project, as well as one student workshop and one community workshop. The Creativity Fellowships are open to all artists resident in, and with the right to work in, the UK.
