GENERATIONS by artist Julian Germain is a celebration of families and people from across Birmingham and the Black Country. The exhibition will take place as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival – a six month celebration of culture in the West Midlands which will surround the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
GENERATIONS is presented by Birmingham 2022 Festival, with GRAIN Projects and Multistory, and is generously supported by Arts Council England and National Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Bursary Opportunities are awards made to a photographer or artist, writer or curator working in photography to make new work in response to the theme GENERATIONS.
Deadline for applications; 31 st March 2022 at 5pm (GMT)
Each bursary offers an award of £2,500 to support the making of new work and a public engagement outcome. The making of the work and the outcome should take place in Birmingham or/and the Black Country, UK. The work must be made and the public engagement outcome delivered before the 30 th September 2022.
The bursary supports artistic development and experimentation and the production of new work. We are interested in interesting and innovative approaches to engaging with the theme GENERATIONS, including working with vernacular imagery or socially engaged photography, and to delivering a public engagement outcome.
