Jamboree Bursaries


CVAN NW are delighted to support Low Profile with the launch of Jamboree 2018, a bespoke artist-led professional development festival planned for 28 June - 1 July next year.

Based in the South West, artist duo Low Profile are hosting a four day artist-led professional development event at Dartington Estate in Devon. Bringing together 150 visual artists, curators and programmers in a relaxed outdoor setting across four days, attendees will navigate a participant-built programme of presentations, micro-exhibitions, activities and discussions to share practice.

Jamboree's aim is to support the development of a geographically dispersed, national network of artists and curators. Jamboree 2018 will enable essential, productive connections to be made between participants; supporting artists and curators to meet; share experiences, exchange skills, test out ideas & broaden the reach of their work.

How are CVAN NW supporting?

As a project partner they are offering 3 FREE bursary places to cover a Weekend Entrance Pass to Jamboree which includes camping, and a contribution to travel costs which will be managed separately by CVAN NW.


Visual artists, curators, programmers and arts organisers based in the North West region.
