a-n Re:view Bursaries Announced

Twenty-five artists are to gain professional development support through a-n’s artists’ Re:view bursaries. Awarded in March, the bursaries range in value from £310-£1000, from a total fund of £21,700. They are specifically designed to support artists’ self-determined critical and artistic development.

The bursaries were open to a-n's Artist + AIR membership  and four of the recipients are based in the South West. Covering a range of practices each with their own specific needs, this tailored professional development scheme which they have devised themselves, comes at a crucial point both in their individual practices and these challenging economic times. Much of the funding is to be paid in fees to practitioners for advisory sessions.

We asked the South West based artists to share their plans for the bursary awards with us. Read about them by following the links below:

Susan Francis, Salisbury
Kate Paxman, Torbay
Joe Stevens, Bridport
Clare Thornton, Bristol

The successful artists based elsewhere in the UK were: Judith Alder (Sussex), Sovay Berriman (London), Charlie Carter (Hampshire), Amelia Crouch (Leeds), Sophie Cullinan (East Midlands), Susan Diab (Brighton), FrenchMottershead-(London), Penny Hallas (Powys), Anton Hecht (Newcastle), Matthew Krishanu (London), Sally Lemsford (East Midlands), Jean McEwan (Keighley), Steve Messam (Cumbria, Elizabeth Murton (London), Julia O'Connell (Coventry), Chantal Powell (London) Phiona Richards (Northampton), Alexis Zelda Stevens (London), Alana Tyson (Wales) and Claire Weetman (St Helens).

Congratulations to everyone who received a Re:view bursary.
