Cockpit Arts Setting up Bursaries

Deadline 1 February 2013

It can be difficult for designer-makers at the start of their career to make the leap from working from home to taking a place at Cockpit Arts. Cockpit Arts have therefore developed a number of bursaries that will specifically assist designer makers who have set up in the last three years.

Bursaries will be made  to selected applicants who demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit as well as creative excellence and craft skill and are seeking support to take their business to the next level.   The Bursaries contribute towards a place at Cockpit for one year and include studio space, business development support and selling & promotional opportunities.

Each Bursary is worth £2,000 against the cost of the Cockpit Arts incubator package, with the remaining £2,000 fee being provided by the Bursary winners, payable on a monthly basis.

Deadline for applications 1 February. interviews 8 February, programme start March 2013.  Contact sally@cockpitarts.com for an application pack.
