Outside In and The Arts Society South Downs launch new artist bursary

Outside In and The Arts Society South Downs are delighted to announce a new bursary designed to support artists’ practice and development. The Andrew Edney Bursary is described as an ‘important opportunity’ by Marc Steene, founder and director of the award-winning arts charity Outside In which works to provide a platform for artists facing significant barriers to the art world.

“There are few opportunities for financial support for artists to further their development, and this is especially so for artists addressing barriers to the art world. We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Arts Society South Downs to offer our artists a significant opportunity to further their creative development.”

Marc Steene, Outside In director

Artists* will be able to apply for amounts up to £500 and the bursary will be available twice yearly, in April and September, offering a total of £1,500pa. The bursary will be ring fenced and not used for any other purpose, any unspent money will be rolled forward to the following year.

*The bursary is for artists living and working in Hampshire or Sussex

More information about the bursary and how to apply will be posted in the Outside In news section nearer the time
