This year we are offering three Emerging Artist commissions for disabled artists who are based in Surrey. The programme will support artists to develop their practice by offering mentoring from industry professionals and fostering connections with our cultural partners across the county. For two of the Emerging Artists commissions we are collaborating with cultural partners Watts Gallery and RHS Garden Wisley to offer partnership commissions.
Emerging Artist commissions are for artists working in any artform to make a piece of work. For the DAiSY commission the work can be linked to any subject or theme. For the partnership commissions we encourage you to tailor your work in accordance with the organisation’s additional criteria, which you can respond to in your application.
We are looking for gifted, emerging artists who identify as disabled, who live, have a base, or work in Surrey, and who are keen for some support to progress their artistic development.
More detailed guidance and application forms for each commission can be found in the links below:
