MK Gallery bursaries

MK Gallery are inviting proposals from early career artists (within three years of completing an undergraduate degree) living and working in Beds, Bucks, Cambs, Herts, Northants and Oxfordshire to develop site-specific works in any medium or art form which respond to and animate City Club – a major new commission developed by artists Gareth Jones and Nils Norman.

City Club both surrounds the newly expanded Gallery as three external spaces – a garden, piazza and playscape – as well as informing the interior of the new gallery building. Proposals can utilise the external spaces and/or the gallery building.

Five bursaries of £3,000 will be awarded to develop and deliver the works which will form part of our public programme in 2019. The bursaries are inclusive of fees, materials and travel costs.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 23 November. For further information email or visit the MK Gallery website to download an application pack.
