Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries 2020-22

Now open for Fellowship applications!

Over 2020-2022, the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries programme will support 50 salaried jobs in arts and cultural organisations across the UK, for individuals from low socio-economic backgrounds. The programme is dedicated to supporting outstanding early-career artists, curators, producers and creatives to thrive, and working in partnership with leading arts and cultural organisations to take an inclusive, intersectional approach to recruitment, artist development and organisational change.

Fair access to working in the arts and cultural sector remains an urgent issue, with those from low socio-economic backgrounds still significantly under-represented amongst the artists and employees of UK theatres, festivals, galleries and arts organisations of all kinds. The programme seeks to interrogate and remove barriers to entry and enable those on the programme – the ‘Fellows’ – to build careers in the arts with confidence and support.
