Sustained development for Scottish-based mid-career artists 

Artist Attachment is a major new paid opportunity for Scottish-based artists with a significant track record from any art form to focus on a new development in their work. It is 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 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. 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.

During the time of the attachment, the artist will be paid a bursary of £15,000, calculated to give them up to 6 months dedicated time whilst allowing them time to undertake other commissions or work. The artist will also have a budget of £5,000 to be used in connection with the attachment - for example, to pay other artists or collaborators, to travel or undertake training.

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 first recipient of the award is visual artist, composer, and performer Hanna Tuulikki - you can find out more about her and what she will do during her attachment here.

The 2018 round of applications has now closed and we will be announcing this year's recipient at the end of July.
