Call for Proposals: Diverse Actions Leadership Bursaries 2017/18

The Live Art Development Agency (LADA) is offering two Leadership Bursaries of £10,000 each for artists and/or arts workers from culturally diverse backgrounds (BME: Black and Minority Ethnic) as part of Live Art UK’s Diverse Actions programme.

The Leadership Bursaries will support a self-determined, year-long programme of artistic, professional and skills development by artists and/or arts workers.

The aim is to stimulate or enhance new ways of working, the development of new contexts and discourses, and ultimately enhance artistic practice and the capacity for artistic leadership.

Bursary recipients will have access to LADA’s resources and facilities, and be supported by LADA’s team. They will work in close consultation with the Diverse Actions Project Manager. They will also have access to the wider expertise of the Live Art UK network and the Diverse Actions Steering Group, composed of members of Live Art UK and independent artists and advisors.

Application deadline: Noon, Monday 5 June, to support a year-long programme of activity in 2017/18.

More information and application forms are here.
