WetlandLIFE Bursaries

Website: http://wetlandlife.org/opportunities

WetlandLIFE is seeking to commission new artworks relating to the three case study areas: the Somerset Levels, Humber Levels and Thames Estuary. They are open to artists from any artform working in a variety of mediums such as visual art, sound, text, animation, etc. They are looking for artists whose work can contribute to our knowledge and appreciation of wetlands and mosquitoes. They are offering three bursaries of £5,000 each (total of £15,000). Artists can apply for the total amount – and create work that relates to the project’s three case study sites or to wetlands in general – or for one bursary worth £5000 – perhaps focusing specifically on one of the sites. The bursaries cover the artist(s) fees, accommodation and travel, and all costs associated with the production and display of the artworks. Artworks by the successful artist/s will be included in a final touring exhibition, which will visit each of the three case study sites. Expenses for travel and accommodation to participate in the final exhibition – as well as some project meetings throughout the bursary period – will be funded separately by the project. The bursaries will begin in August 2017 and finish with the final exhibitions in early/mid 2019.
