Northumbria University are accepting applications to the Warwick Stafford Fellowship 2016/17. Early-mid career practitioners in fine art are invited to apply to the fellowship which offers a £20,000 bursary to the chosen candidate.
In addition to the bursary Northumbria University will provide the successful Fellow with:
• A studio space in the BxNU Institute for Contemporary Art at BALTIC 39
• Technical support
• Access to and participation with an environment of postgraduate and PhD arts researchers
• Access to leading academics and internationally renowned artists
The Fellowship offers an early-mid career artist a structured opportunity to advance their practice and research and engage with a stimulating community of professional artists, students, fine art researchers and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art partners. Support and development will be designed to meet the needs of the individual fellow. The artist will participate in and contribute to the research environment at BALTIC 39 whilst developing a body of new work that advances their practice-led research. New work will be accessible during public events at the BxNU Institute and will form a core part of the exhibition programme in Gallery North, the Faculty's prestigious venue for contemporary art.
The Fellowship will culminate in a solo exhibition with publication.
