The micro bursaries scheme has proven very popular and applications are currently temporarily closed for the remainder of this year. Applications will reopen on 2 January 2017.

We are offering artists, curators and writers living in the West Midlands the opportunity to apply for micro bursaries towards artistic and professional development. Bursaries of up to £250 will be available towards the costs of, for example, research visits, attendance at exhibitions and conferences, travel and accommodation.

If you would like to apply for a micro bursary, please send an application to Anneka French at You should send your CV and a summary of no more than 300 words outlining what you plan to do, where it is, and how you feel it would help to support and develop your practice. Please also submit 3 images of your work, your website address and an itemised budget for your proposed activity.

The deadline for applications is rolling. We will respond within 1 month so please ensure your application is sent in good time.
