Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary

shapeartsThe 2019 Shape Arts Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary (ARMB), an annual award set up in memory of sculptor Adam Reynolds to support mid-career disabled artists, is now open for applications.

Now in its eleventh year, the ARMB offers this year’s successful recipient an award of £10,000 and an accompanying three-month residency with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts, Gateshead from 4 March to 31 May 2019.

The Bursary provides an opportunity for disabled artists to develop their ideas and practice without pressure to deliver a particular outcome such as finished or exhibition-ready work. The recipient of the last ARMB was sculptor Terence Birch, whose residency with Pallant House Gallery and the University of Chichester took place from February to May 2018. Previous residencies have been hosted by Turner Contemporary, MargateThe V&A, LondonThe New Art Gallery, WalsallThe Bluecoat, LiverpoolCamden Arts Centre, London and Spike Island, Bristol.

The residency will also include developing and delivering public-facing activities with BALTIC and Shape, and showing work as part of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary Shortlist exhibition, in which all artists shortlisted for the award will be given the opportunity to participate.

Submissions deadline: 12 noon, 1 October 2018
