The Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary 2013 is now open to applicants.
Deadline for applications is 2nd Sept 2013, 12 noon.
This bursary is available to disabled mid-career visual artists, and is designed to offer time, space and support for artists to develop their creative practice without the pressure of delivering a final work or particular outcome. This year’s winner will be awarded £5,000 and a three-month residency at Spike Island, Bristol in January 2014. The bursary was set up in memory of Adam Reynolds (1959-2005), a sculptor, curator, teacher and a leading figure in the disability arts sector. World-renowned sculptor Antony Gormley is patron of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary.
“Adam was inspirational as an artist and a man – seeing his disability as a strength. This bursary is the most practical and powerful way to continue doing what Adam did to make the possible palpable.” Antony Gormley
After a successful residency at Camden Arts Centre in 2012 we are returning to previous host venue Spike Island, international centre for the development of contemporary art and design.
