Square Peg Bursary, Artlink Hull




An open submission bursary opportunity for a visual artist based in the North of England who identifies as being disabled

Deadline: Friday 16th February 2018 at 5PM.

Square Peg is Artlink Hull’s wide-ranging disability and diversity arts programme, commissioned and supported by Hull UK City of Culture 2017. The final Square Peg project of 2017 is an open submission bursary opportunity for an artist based in the North of England who identifies as being a disabled person. The selected artist or partnership will be funded and supported to create new work for a solo exhibition to be held at Artlink Hull in summer 2018. The Square Peg Bursary is intended to provide an opportunity for a disabled artist to create new work for exhibition which they may otherwise be unable to realise.

A shortlist from the submissions will be drawn up by a panel with personal and professional experience in art and disability including artists, curators and critics. Shortlisted applicants may be invited to interview before the selection of the final artist, for which communication and/or transportation support can be provided.

The bursary is £3,500 for the selected artist’s time and materials/resources for the work/s to be created. Additional finance is available for communications and transportation support for the selected artist during the production process as well as for the realisation of the final exhibition.

Interested artists should submit their outline proposal for the bursary opportunity along with details on their artistic development and supporting information via the portal on CuratorSpace here. If you require application information or your submission to be in an alternate accessible format, please contact us by emailing or via telephone: 01482 345104 to discuss your needs.

This project is funded by Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and supported by Shape Arts.

Affordable Workspace Creche - Dalston



V22’s first Workspace Creche opened in September 2017. Our aim is to provide a space for artists, freelancers and entrepreneurs, who are also parents, to work alongside a crèche facility for their children.

The enterprise is run by V22 Foundation ‐ a not‐for‐profit organisation ‐ and, if successful, we want to make such an offer an integral part of V22's studio and workspace buildings across the city. Our business plan is based on the most affordable model we could come up with. We have tried to build flexibility into it without escalating administration costs, and hope we may grow to be more flexible as we settle into our daily rhythms.

What we want to create, in partnership with our parents and carers, is an ethos of co‐caring for our children in an environment built on a child‐centered approach to daily routines which celebrates the importance of play.

We believe, like Albert Einstein, that play is the highest form of research, and we take seriously our commitment to a child‐led approach, not only to play, but also to the changing design ofthe creche space, the choice of books for our library, and even visits to the local market to choose fruit and vegetables for snack time.

The crèche has dedicated access to the lovely Dalston Eastern Curve Garden which means that our children can have a daily outing to this lovely community green space. The children also use local facilities like the library at the end of the road and the local Ridley Road market. Parents have already started to get involved offering workshops on their specialisms or hobbies, these include: growing plants, looking at art and painting. We hope more parents wil become involved as we belive in a co-operative model of childcare and believe it adds to the culture of co-caring which our crèche provides. 

Sessions run from 9am - 12 noon and 1.30pm - 4.30pm. An outline of our daily routine can be found here, and FAQ's here. 

Parents of children under five (or expecting one soon) who would like to register their interest, can fill out our short form here and we will get back to you with news, waiting list information, and availability.

We hope you will join us in creating the next generation of creative parenthood.

We are delighted that the Mayor of London pledged to our crowdfunding campaign on Spacehive to help to set up the crèche. He said: 'I am delighted to be supporting projects like the V22 Workspace Creche that will help strengthen local communities and help to make London an even greater city.’

OPEN CALL: artistic residency in Brazil offered to UK based artists



British Council Brazil and People’s Palace Projects are offering a year’s programme of three residencies for 3 UK based emerging artists in Brazil, produced by Casa Rio (PPP do Brasil’s artist residency space, Rio de Janeiro) to take place between September 2017 and April 2018.

To apply for the third residency, in association with Instituto Sacatar, please complete the form by clicking here:

The deadline for applications is 30th November 2017 

More information about AiR B2B:

The first residency took place in September 2017 between Rio de Janeiro and the Ipatse village in the Xingu Indigenous Territory (Mato Grosso). It was offered in association with the Indigenous Association of the Kuikuro People in Xingu (AIKAX). The artist selected was Conrad Murray: actor, writer, director, rapper and beatboxer, drama teacher and founding member/facilitator for the last 9 years of theBAC Beatbox Academy.

The second residency is scheduled for November 2017 at Casa Rio. The selected artist is director and theatre-maker Gemma Kerr: co-founder of High Hearted Theatre, Associate Director ofForward Theatre Project (an Associate Company of Paines Plough), and Associate Artist of Omnibus Clapham.

The third and last residency in this programme will take place in April 2018 between Rio de Janeiro – where the selected artist will spend a few days at the beginning and at the end of the residency – and Itaparica, Bahia state (North East Brazil) where he/she will spend a month. It will be offered in association with Instituto Sacatar, an ocean-side historic estate run by Sacatar Foundation which engages with individuals, community organizations, schools, museums, libraries, and other cultural organizations to present public programmes, performances, and educational opportunities locally within Bahia and around the world.

Provisional dates (TBC with the selected artist):

4th April 2018:             arrival in Rio

9th April 2018:             arrival at Sacatar Institute, Itaparica

7th May 2018:              return to Rio

11th May 2018:            public sharing at Casa Rio

12th May 2018:            return to UK

The offer to the artist will include: economy flight London/Rio/London; and Rio/Salvador/Rio; airport transfers; flight insurance; accommodation; cooked food on some days and per diems on others; artists fee based on UK industry guidelines for artistic residencies; a small budget for materials; a local producer/translator to support their project; a local team setting up and monitoring the residency with appropriate local partners; local transport costs; incidental costs appropriate to the residency (e.g. vaccinations, etc)

The aim of this programme is to encourage artists interested in pursuing cultural projects with a social focus. 

Artists from all artistic disciplines (installation, video art, sculpture, electronic music, painting, drawing, performance, photography, net art etc.) are invited to send a short proposal (see below for further details).

Participating artists are expected to be open to work with others. Sacatar’s team will introduce the selected artist to a range of possible partners in Itaparica in order to help develop the project he/she aims to create during the residency. At the end of the residency, there will be a public sharing of the result of the month’s work and the collaborations at Casa Rio.

Your application for this third residency, in Rio de Janeiro and Itaparica, should include:

Personal information (completed in the survey form)

a short CV (uploaded)

a link to your website, online portfolio, YouTube channel, or any other.

A text (no more than 500 words) describing why you want to undertake this residency and how it relates to your current practice or plans for the future.


You must be over 18.

You must not be a full-time student and need to demonstrate 3 years of practice away from higher education or other training. However, if you are a very well established artist, this will not be the ideal residency for you.

Please bear in mind that one of the aims of the residency is to introduce emerging artists to Brazil and its rich culture. We therefore particularly welcome applications from artists who have notlived or stayed for any significant length of time in Brazil.If you have any special needs or requirements, please let us know.

British Council Brazil and People’s Palace Projects are committed to making all opportunities accessible wherever possible.  We will ensure that arrangements are in place to enable artists with disabilities to participate in the residencies.

Paul Heritage, PPP Artistic Director: “The call is aimed at artists with a social focus, and we are looking for an emerging artist who has much to give and to gain from a life-changing opportunity.”


Please read the information above carefully, we hope it should answer any questions you have about the residency opportunity.  Please direct any further queries to
