The Whitworth Wallis Fellowship 2022 with Birmingham Museums Trust

The Whitworth Wallis Trust funds an annual fellowship with Birmingham Museums Trust, in partnership with Birmingham City University’s (BCU) School of Art.

Applications are sought from BA, MA and PhD fine art or art & design students (Full and Part-time), graduating from BCU’s Birmingham School of Art, and alumni of up to ten years since graduating.

The selected artist will be paid an artist’s bursary of £1,500 to undertake a six month fellowship with Birmingham Museums Trust.

The aim of the fellowship is to enable the artist to research and study the museum collection to inform their own practice, and to develop their professional career.

The fellowship is aimed at early stage and mid-career artists that have studied at BCU’s School of Art and who can demonstrate exceptional creative ability.

Fellowship dates: Monday 17 October 2022 to Sunday 16 April 2023.

Applications can be submitted between 1st and 11th September 2022.
