Announcing Hospitalfield’s Visual Art Graduate Programme 2021

A new opportunity for Scottish art school graduates
Thirty Places: three groups of ten artists

Hospitalfield’s Graduate Programme for 2021 is designed to support the next generation of artists. This new expanded programme gives thirty artists, who have graduated in 2019-20, significant artistic and professional development pathways in recognition of this time of uncertainty.

The programme will offer artists a year long association with Hospitalfield. At the heart of the programme is the learning that participants will gain from both the Mentors’ Circle, a 16-day residency at Hospitalfield and from each other. This structured programme will provide the selected artists with a new network and a period of time to focus on the development of their work.

Supported by the William Grant Foundation, Hope Scott Trust and Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation. We thank Dundee Contemporary Arts for their valuable partnership on the development of the mentoring programme.

Eligibility Artists who have graduated from fine art programmes in Scotland in 2019 or 2020

Places 30 (3 Groups of 10 artists)

Funding Artists will receive a £600 bursary. This is designed to cover the residency period.
