ArtWorks Fellowship – Call for Applications

The ArtWorks Fellowship encourages established artists (working in participatory arts) to design their own professional development and to make a mutual learning journey with a ‘host’ organisation.

Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning, is pleased to partner with Creative Scotland to pilot the ArtWorks Fellowship in Scotland in 2018. The Scottish pilot builds on the success of a bespoke professional development programme, created by Barbican Guildhall as part of ArtWorks, which ran between October 2015 and January 2017.  The Fellowship encourages reciprocal learning, between participating arts organisations and a paired artist. There will be three fellowships available in Scotland in 2018.

Applications from groups under-represented in the arts, such as partnerships with disabled artists and artists from black and ethnic minorities will be particularly welcomed.

What is the ArtWorks Fellowship?
The Fellowship is a yearlong opportunity for 3 mid to large scale organisation (CS RFOs are eligible) and artist partnerships to develop their knowledge and experience in participatory arts and creative learning.

The Fellowship will provide…
A financial grant of £2000 to be spent on artist CPD
A 2-day induction
6 mentoring sessions for the lead organizational staff member and mentoring for the CEO
