Open Call: Shaper/Caper LGBTQ+ Bursary Programme

Shaper/Caper and Dundee Pride have come together to invite artists and innovative thinkers who identify as LGBTQ+ to apply to their Bursary Programme.

The bursary programme is part of OutFest, a festival of activity celebrating and exploring LGBTQ+ history as part of LGBTQ+ history month in February.

This opportunity will offer 3 individuals a bursary of £1,000 and 4 individuals a bursary of £500 to develop ideas, connect with a community of fellow artists  and LGBTQ+ activists and share work at the end of February. The work can be in any format, existing or brand-new work and should explore LGBTQ+ themes. The sharing will be a public event and can take any form, with no requirement for the idea to be finalised by the sharing.
