The Performing Arts Micro Bursaries support independent artists and producers with awards of between £250 and £1,000 and is administered by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. They are interested in proposals for development activities in the performing arts where a clear and specific learning opportunity has been identified. This could be for the making of new work, research, travel, training or mentoring.
The awards are for individuals who have been practising professionally for no more than 10 years, have completed their formal education and are resident in the UK. We cannot accept applications for course fees or any associated study or living costs.
This fund has been created using legacy funds from the BBC Performing Arts Fund to provide individuals with direct support for their professional and creative development, without the expectation of an specific product output and/or public engagement.
Grants are awarded in two rounds, the deadline for this second round is 9 January 2018 and the fund is now open for applications. Read the full terms and conditions and complete application on the website.
