Applications are open for three British Art Network bursary opportunities covering activity from October 2020 to June 2021 (deadline 14 September 2020).

We particularly welcome applications from art workers who are Black, Asian and minority ethnic, working class, have disabilities, or are in any other way under-represented in the curatorial and research landscape.

The Network is committed to equity, justice, accessibility, anti-racism and LGBTQI+ rights. We are currently taking vital time to reflect and hold conversations around Diversity and Inclusion goals for our work.
