Opportunities for artists
Here is a list of opportunities open to artists, from grants to bursaries, prizes, residencies, studio spaces, commissions to exhibitions to help support artist careers. It is entirely free to consult. Click on the triangle next to each opportunity's name to find out more detail about it. You can use the tags below to narrow down your search. We regularly update the information held here, and we encourage you to sign up to ArtULTRA to keep up date.
Many of the opportunities listed here are offered through rolling annual programmes. It is a constantly evolving picture. It is not an exhaustive list, but still a fair collection of what we have found online. The focus of the database is mostly on UK organisations, however we have also included international opportunities that are open to UK based applicants. Where deadlines have passed but may reopen in the future, we flag this up in the detail section. Opportunities constantly on offer (e.g. studios) or with no current deadline show with N/A in the deadline section. Our advice is to use a computer or tablet to navigate through this list vs. a smartphone, although it works on that format too.
If you spot any mistake or if you want to let us know of opportunities not listed here, please get in touch by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
