BURSARIES - NEW FOR 2022
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.
THE FOUR WINNING ARTISTS HAVE BEEN SELECTED, SO KEEP AN EYE ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FOR AN ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE WINNERS.
We were looking for applications from talented artists aged 18 and above, working in any art medium, who have never participated in WOS Summer Art Weeks before. The bursary is to facilitate their 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 have also been 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. In addition, we will be providing mentor support through our network of established artists, who will help them prepare for the event.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
