Talent Development

The Talent Development bursary scheme invites artists to propose and carry out a six month project of support and activities to develop their work and career. The projects selected have involved mentoring, testing out new ideas, creating or developing new work, and gaining skills and knowledge.

The scheme ran first in 2013 and again in 2014. In our third round in 2019 we awarded 11 artists from the SO postcode area a bursary of up to £1000 each. Find out more about these artists and their work, below.

To receive notification when the bursary scheme re-opens, please sign up to the ‘a space’ arts mailing list.

We will be sharing updates on our artists and their projects over the coming months. Follow us on social media to keep up to date.
