2 x Youth Artist Bursaries

Deadline: 10 Dec 2021

Description

We are looking for a dance artist and an artist working in ANY art form who is engaged with their community.

They will receive £5000 as a fee to develop an idea over the year.

We are looking for two artists aged 18-24 to develop ideas for a piece of work.

We are offering £5000 for the artists time between February 2022-March 2023. You will also receive a materials budget, monthly coaching sessions and 3 x mentoring meetings with a professional artist over the year.

BURSARY 1: DANCE ARTIST
This bursary is for a dance artist aged 18-24 to receive £5000 to develop an idea for a piece of work. This could be a live dance performance, piece for film or community project. We would not be looking for the bursary to be used to create a full piece for performance but to explore ideas and look into development routes for the piece beyond the end of the funding. This could include speaking to venues or looking at applying for Creative Scotland Open Project funding.

You are not expected to hold any formal qualifications in dance but need to show a passion and drive to make dance/the arts their career. The successful candidate would receive 1 to 1 mentoring from Lottie Barker, former Producer for Scottish Dance Theatre, to look at their career development and skills in self producing, as well as be matched with a professional dance artist for artistic support. They would be expected to attend a check in once a month and create something by the end of the year that could be shared.

BURSARY 2: COMMUNITY ARTIST
This bursary would be for an artist of any art form aged 18-24 to receive £5000 to develop an idea for a piece of work that involved communities.

We would expect the applicant to have identified the community in which they would work - either a geographical location or community of interest (ie. a particular disability, care experienced young people or people excluded from mainstream education). You are not expected to hold any formal qualifications but need to show a passion for engaging local communities in the arts. The successful candidate would receive 1 to 1 mentoring from Lottie Barker to look at their career development and skills as well as be matched with a professional artist in their art form to assist creatively. They would be expected to attend a check in once a month and create something by the end of the year that could be shared.
