Encore '10 x 10' Awards
Wed 6 Feb 2002
£10,000 for 10 artists in the Northern Arts region.
Northern Arts will award 10 artists £10,000, giving them the freedom to reflect on and develop their practice. The awards are part of the Northern Arts encore programme, that continues the success of the Year of the Artist. Who can apply? encore bursaries are open to any professional artists from any art form, for example visual arts, performance, digital or electronic arts. Artists who create should have completed at least four pieces of professional work. This might be choreographing dance pieces, exhibiting, or being published. Artists who interpret (e.g. an dancer, actor, musician etc.) should have been working professionally in their chosen field for at least four years, and should be seeking to diversify. This might be an actor who wishes to develop their directing skills, or a singer who wishes to compose work. Who can't apply? Full-time students including post-graduate students; artists who have received a bursary or similar 'open' award within the last six months from any other source (e.g. New Writing North, the Jerwood Foundation, the Arts Council); are not professional artists as defined in the encore programme; artists based outside the Northern Arts region. For further information and an application pack telephone: 0191 255 8527 or Email your name and address to putting 'encore application pack request' in the subject line. Northern Arts has organised two information days for artists who are interested in applying for the encore 10x10 bursaries. These will give more background and be an opportunity to talk over ideas. Surgeries with artform officers will be available. (Places are limited.) These will take place at Northern Arts on Monday 11 February at 1.00 and on Thursday 14 February at Cumbria College of Art & Design at 1.00.
