WOS is funding four bursaries of £250 each that will enable new talent in the early stages of the creative journey to get involved with Summer Art Weeks 2022 and assist in the transition to becoming an artist.


We are looking for talented artists aged 18 and above, working in any art medium, who have never participated in WOS Summer Art Weeks before to apply for £250. The money must be used to facilitate your involvement in the Summer Art Weeks and can be used for materials to produce artwork, framing, printing, display equipment, travel costs etc.

The successful artists will also be given one year’s free WOS membership and their Summer Art Weeks 2022 entry paid (combined value £130), as well as support in finding a venue through CONNECT. In addition, we will provide mentor support through our network of established artists, who will work with you to help you prepare for the event.

We will notify all applicants as to whether they have been successful or not by 28 January 2022.

In addition to the bursaries, we are also improving the way in which we support all the artists new to Summer Art Weeks or those who have perhaps only been involved a couple of times before. This support will include:

  • Help in finding a venue – check out the CONNECT section of the website
  • Marketing / Get Involved Workshop in Spring 2022 – details TBC
  • Closer links to the network of area reps, who will act as a mentor / buddy
  • Improved Help & Resources in a dedicated members’ area to include information on video production, photography, social media etc

We will regularly communicate with you by email, but if you have any specific support queries then please email emerge@warwickshireopenstudios.org
