2020 is the final year of the Balavoulin Art Grants and we are inviting all artists with a Highlands and Islands connection to consider applying for the Grants.
Generally, we are most focussed on the fine arts, which were Shirleyanne’s greatest interest, including printmaking, drawing, illustration, painting, textile, sculpture, ceramics.
We have no plans to make awards in the fields of film, photography, digital arts and multi-media.
The awards are intended to support people who have decided to make a career in art. Typically they will be early in career regardless of age, with potential for long term impact.
They could also be artists who have taken a break and are coming back to their work, or someone who has reached a stagnant plateau in their career and is looking for something to spark their career or create a game-changer.
Deadline is Monday 20 April 2020 at 00:00
