Heads up the second round of our Artist Award will open on 1 August 2017. As before round #2 offers a £1,000 cash, a personalised support package, an artist film produced by Axisweb plus editorial and promotion through our website and social media platforms.
“The Award supports experimentation and is a unique opportunity for Axisweb members to evolve new work in an open ended way” Sarah Martin, Axisweb Trustee and Head of Programme at Turner Contemporary.
In round 1, Chris Agnew was chosen for his project ‘Annex’. However with 89 strong applications, we had to do more. So we reached out to other strong applicants and offered additional one-to-one support, mentoring, film-making, marketing and content development, and access to vacant spaces.
Our ambition to make the Axisweb Artist Award a permanent feature. Including round #2, we are committed to delivering 4 more rounds.
If the timing’s not right now, there will be other opportunities.
