FREE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT ARTISTS
Image%20Elle_edited.png

On this page you can explore ArtULTRA's research on organisations which provide help for artists, via grants, bursaries, prizes, residencies, studio spaces and exhibitions opportunities. It is entirely free to consult.

This research was undertaken using resources such as GrantNav; the Charity Commission; Companies House and institutions’ own websites to gather the information presented in these pages. We have tried to provide as much information as was available to us via desk-based research.

It is not an exhaustive list of all organisations supporting UK-based artists, instead, it is an initial attempt to centralise information and begin mapping out what support already exists.

Please let us know of any other organisations that we can add to the research, or if we have got something wrong - we will do our best to add to and correct the information as soon as possible.
