Magnetic North offer development opportunity for mid-career artists

Applications are now open for Magnetic North’s Artist Attachment – a major new paid opportunity for Scottish-based artists supported by Creative Scotland and Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

Any professional artist based in Scotland with a significant track-record of making work for at least seven years is eligible to apply. The artist can be from any art form – theatre, dance, visual art, music or film, for example – but the attachment will be particularly suitable for those with either a performative element to their work, or an interest in developing one.

The selected artist will be attached to Magnetic North for up to 18 months with the purpose of focusing on a significant new development in their practice. During the attachment, the artist will be paid a bursary of £15,000 and will also have a budget of £5,000 to be used in connection with the attachment. The artist will be supported throughout by Magnetic North’s core team of Artistic Director and Producer, who will help them shape and plan the attachment. They will also receive regular mentoring from Artistic Director Nicholas Bone.

The deadline for applications is Monday 11 June. For further information and application details visit Magnetic North’s website.
