LOEWE FOUNDATION / Studio Voltaire Award

LOEWE FOUNDATION Studio Voltaire Award

Applications are now open for the second edition of the LOEWE FOUNDATION / Studio Voltaire Award, a programme to increase opportunities for underrepresented artists. This two-year programme benefits seven artists through rent-free studio space, professional development opportunities and a £5,000 bursary. ⁠ ⁠

Established in 2021, the award has been developed in direct response to the need for affordable and secure workspace for artists in London, the availability of which has decreased significantly. The award aims to support artists who experience reduced opportunities due to economic precarity and limited financial means. ⁠ ⁠

The LOEWE FOUNDATION / Studio Voltaire Award aims to cultivate spaces where artists can connect in a supportive studio environment that facilitates creative possibilities, risk-taking, experimentation and exchange. ⁠ ⁠

Celebrating talent, individuality and original thinking within contemporary art practice, the award supports artists at all stages of their careers, including emerging and under-represented artists, particularly those who are marginalised or experience intersecting forms of discrimination. The programme aims to increase and strengthen equitable representation and access and amplify artistic voices across class, race, gender, sexuality and disability to fully reflect the diversity of London’s population. ⁠ ⁠ Awards will be allocated based on talent and need. Applications will be received through an open call and via a group of selected nominators. ⁠ ⁠

The deadline for applications is 6 pm BST on Wednesday 10 May 2023. ⁠ ⁠

The programme aims to increase and strengthen equitable representation and access and amplify artistic voices across class, race, gender, sexuality and disability.

  • A bursary of £5,000 for each artist
  • An individualised programme of mentoring and professional development
  • Curatorial and pastoral support
  • Access to local and international audiences via public events programming

Awards will be allocated based on talent and need. Applications will be received through an open call and via a group of selected nominators.
