LUX Scotland are delighted to offer two bursary spaces for Aberdeen-based artists to attend our Developing a new work’ workshop taking place on 20 – 21 April 2022 in Glasgow. Two selected artists will receive a bursary of £300 each, to contribute to their travel and accommodation to take part in the workshop.

Developing a new work’ is a two-day workshop for artists seeking to develop their new moving image project led by Benjamin Cook (Director, LUX) with Eve Smith (Learning Programme Manager, LUX Scotland).

Working within an informal and mutually supportive small group environment, participants will bring a short project proposal to be workshopped over the two days. The full details of what you can expect of the workshop can be found here.

Deadline for expressions of interest: 14 March 2022 10am.

Selected participants will be notified by 17 March, 5pm.


The bursary spaces are supported as part of LUX Scotland’s Aberdeen programme. A professional development programme for early career Aberdeen-based artists and curators.
