Together, BACKLIT and NAE are pleased to offer an opportunity for Global Ethnic Majority artists in the East Midlands to access up to five months of free studio space, along with mentoring support and a small commission fee.
This initiative aims to address the barriers that Global Ethnic Majority artists face when trying to access studio spaces and develop their practice within the East Midlands’ arts landscape.
The funded studio residency will take place from November 1, 2023, to March 2024. During this period, all costs associated with renting a studio at BACKLIT will be covered. Additionally, a £2,500 bursary will be provided for research and development expenses, including travel.
The goal of this residency is to support a Global Ethnic Majority artist who has faced challenges in developing their work and establishing their studio practice. Applicants must be based in the East Midlands and commit to traveling to Nottingham for the duration of the residency.MORE INFORMATION HERE
