engage Scotland Bursaries for this year's engage International Conference
Five bursary-funded places are available for representatives of Scotland-based visual arts organisations to attend the 2016 engage International Conference. Bursary funding will pay for the Conference ticket and will also offer up to £140 towards travel/accommodation.
Organisations wishing to apply must have a commitment to a contemporary visual arts programme and developing audiences. Applicants do not need to be current members of engage. Freelancers may apply but will need to show that attending the conference will have a clear public benefit through their work.
Priority will be given to applicants who have not attended an engage International Conference before and to those who have not received a Conference bursary before.
Bursary recipients will be expected to attend the whole Conference and write a short feedback report which will be published on the engage Scotland website.
To be considered, please send an email to Sarah Yearsley, engage Scotland Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 10am on Tuesday 26 July 2016, with the following details:
- Your name, organisation name and job title
- A short paragraph stating why you are interested in this opportunity and how it fits with your wider programme
- Details of where other funding for you to attend the Conference will come from; you or your organisation will be expected to cover any additional expense
- Your current CV
Please note unsuccessful applicants will be offered Early Bird rates subsequent to the deadline.
engage Scotland Bursary Places are funded by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. No further funding from other Creative Scotland funding programmes is available to attend the engage International Conference.
