Jerwood WB Artist Attachments

Whitstable Biennale are delighted to have been selected to be part of the Jerwood Arts Development Programme Fund.

We will be offering three Jerwood WB Artist Attachments which will provide paid time and support over a year for three early-career artists.

This is a significant opportunity for three artists to develop their practice, exploring new ideas and taking the risks that have the potential to transform practice and career. It is aimed at artists who are a critical early point in their career and priority will be given to artists who are currently under-supported across the contemporary visual art sector and face real barriers to accessing opportunities.

Each artist will receive a fee of £8,000 plus materials and travel, and the tailor-made programme will include mentoring and peer support.

The Jerwood WB Artist Attachments will run from April 2020 to March 2021, and the three artists will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas and/or new work at our next Whitstable Biennale festival in June 2021.

The final date for submissions will be 6 March 2020. Access support will be given. Sign up to Whitstable Biennale’s mailing list to receive information by email.
