In response to requests, The France Brodeur Young Artists Award (FBYAA) is extending the deadline for applications to its 2017 round of awards.
(Please Note: All applications already received will be included automatically in this revised timetable).
The new closing date is Friday 20 October 2017
We hope this will allow more young artists with potential projects to have the time to put an application together.
The FBYAA offers financial support to a young artist(s), aged between 18 and 35 years old, in relation to their art and artistic career. Grants awarded will be towards costs involved in a proposed project, which should include developing new work. (Please read the full T&Cs in the application pack) Practitioners who can demonstrate a commitment to their work, technical rigour, and development within their practice, would be ideal candidates.
Awards of between £500 and £2,500 are available.
It is intended that award(s) will be announced in November 2017.

The FBYAA was set up in memory of France Brodeur. France was a printmaker with international exhibitions to her name and a long-time member of the Oxford
Printmakers Co-operative (OPC), Oxford, England. She had a wide range of interests
in the arts, particularly the visual arts, theatre and dance. Originally from Quebec,
Canada, France lived for nearly 20 years in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England,
and died there in April 2014. The FBYAA seeks to honour both her art and her belief
in life and its need to be lived and celebrated. France had a particular interest in
the aspirations of those younger than her.
