Critical Theory in Contemporary Art Practice Bursary, Summer 2018

DEADLINE Friday, 23 February 2018

Applications for this fees-only bursary are now closed and the results are out!

Congratulations to Lucy Webster for earning the fee-waiver award. Lucy is a multidisciplinary designer who explores themes of cultural critique, sociology, patriarchy and semiotics in a range of media including performance, film, fiction, poetry and sculpture.

For more information please visit our post on the Fee-waiver Award Outcome. Many thanks to all the excellent candidates for taking the time to apply and to everyone who helped spread the word.

UPDATE: Critical Theory in Practice (proposal for a collectively organised course)

In discussions following the recent Fee-waiver Award, the idea emerged to organise a course based on a labour exchange. The course will be organised collectively, giving the opportunity to those who cannot afford the fees to participate. It is also an opportunity for those who are interested in working together to develop an alternative model of free and sustainable education. Depending on how this goes, it will initially replace the Fee-waiver Award with a more equitable and inclusive alternative. For more information and to join the team and get involved please visit the proposal page on Openki.net.
