New Work Network - Activator Bursaries 2008

New Work Network (NWN) is offering THREE 12-MONTH BURSARIES OF £4000 to artists based in the EAST, NORTH WEST AND SOUTH EAST REGIONS (one bursary per region). The bursary will support an artist ‘activator’ whose practice enables/facilitates/connects other artists working in the new work sector.

The aim of the bursary is to create artist-led opportunities and activity that support and nurture artists and the new work arts community. The focus of this programme rests on the importance of creating space and structures for artists to come together to share ideas and work. It also aims to create connections between the artistic community and partnering venue/s and Higher Education institutes.

The selected candidates will each work with NWN and its regional partner organisations, including:
EAST: Essex University/Lakeside Theatre, Colchester Arts Centre
NORTH WEST: Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster University
SOUTH EAST: Basement Arts Productions, South East and Chichester University.

NWN is a national, artist-led support organisation bringing together people working in live art, contemporary performance and interdisciplinary practice in England.
NWN is an equal opportunities employer, is committed to equality of opportunity in all recruitment procedures and welcomes applications from all members of the community. To request an application pack and guidelines: email
