The Arts Council of England invites applications for support to R&D activities within the grants for the arts programme. This supports the opportunity for an artist to consider their practice, develop a new idea or a new way of working. The following activities may be supported:
•time to develop new artistic ideas and work;
•retreat or residency opportunities in the UK and internationally;
•access to mentoring and shadowing opportunities;
•access to production and workspace;
•opportunities to go see to further inform your own practice;
•development of new partnerships and networks;
•training and continuing professional development opportunities for artists.
Grants can fund activity outside the UK, but only where there is a clear benefit to artists, arts organisations or audiences in England.
This is an open call without a deadline.
