York Open Studios 2018 Multimedia Selection Application

York Open Studios is pleased to offer a bursary of £500 to visual artists who create work using projection, performance,
installations or other conceptual media.

Examples of recent multi-media exhibitions for YOS include:

“Exploring how the rivers of York have shaped the city, you will see images, film and objects, as well a live performance”

“Abstracted and ambiguous films combining both still and moving images of known and lesser known places
within York, showing the city in an engrossing and unusual way”

Your application form must be submitted by midnight 11th September 2017. A panel comprising of members of York Open Studios committee will base their selection on the quality of your written submission and your images. Please give information about the rationale behind your work and how you intend to show/display it. If your application is of interest you will be invited for an informal interview to discuss your proposal. If selected, you will be notified as soon as possible and asked to complete a further online form giving information for your directory entry.
All applicants must live or have their studio within a 10 mile radius of York City Centre. Our map clearly shows the York Open Studios boundary.



Please submit five print quality, hi res (300 pixels/inch) digital images. Images must show five individual examples of the type of work you intend to exhibit. If accepted, your images will be used on our website, publicity and in the directory.


If you have a venue lined up, great. But if not you must have one in place by 28 October 2017 or you will not be able to take part. We can help you but it is your responsibility.
