Visualise - New Mentoring Programme for Young Visual Artists in Birmingham

To celebrate Birmingham’s Year of Arts and Young People, Birmingham Museums is launching Visualise, an exciting new Mentoring Programme for Birmingham-based visual artists aged 18 – 25 and funded by Birmingham City Council. 

We are looking for 10 young artists to be mentored by professional artists Colin Yates and Benny Semp, and work towards their Arts Award Silver. At the end of the programme one artist will be granted a bursary of £1000 to create a piece of art and given the opportunity to display their work at Birmingham Museums.

The project will run until the end of March 2017 and during that time, participants will meet with Colin and Benny at specifically selected sites across the city that reflect culture in Birmingham.

If you want the opportunity to learn from professional artists and create your own piece of work for display in a museum then please register your interest. To find out more or for details on how to register your interest and apply, please contact Tom Dipple at tom.dipple@birminghammuseums.org.uk

The deadline for applications is December 5th.

Participants must be willing and able to work independently and be able to come to regular meetings.
