Launching in October 2019, the Cultural Institute at Swansea University is offering two Creativity Fellowships for professional artists of any practice/medium (including but not limited to writers, visual artists, performers, makers, musicians) to create a new work inspired by cutting-edge academic research at the university.

Each 12-month fellowship includes a stipend of £10,000 (plus travel and accommodation expenses of up to £1200) paid in three instalments across the fellowship year. The Creativity Fellows will each engage with a specific research project, collaborating with the lead academic and their team to create a new work of art to be delivered, performed/exhibited in the December following the fellowship period.
