Whitstable Biennale

Jerwood WB Artist Attachments

Whitstable Biennale was founded in 2002, a festival with an international reputation for working with early-career artists to develop ambitious, risk-taking new art in film and performance.

The Jerwood WB Artist Attachments will provide paid time and support over a year for three early-career artists. It is a significant opportunity for three artists to develop their practice, exploring new ideas and taking the risks that have the potential to transform practice and career. It is aimed at artists who are at a critical early point in their career and priority will be given to artists who are currently under-supported across the contemporary visual art sector and face real barriers to accessing opportunities.

Each artist will receive a fee of £8,000 plus materials and travel, and the tailor-made programme will include mentoring and peer support.

The Jerwood WB Artist Attachments will run from April 2020 to March 2021, and the artists will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas and/or new work at the nest festival Whitstable Biennale 2021, taking place in June.

The application pack will full information on how to apply will be available from 10 January 2020 when applications open. The final date for submissions will be 6 March 2020. Access support will be given. Sign up to Whitstable Biennale's mailing list to receive information by email.
