Womxn of Colour Art Award


This new bi-annual art award recognizes the inequities and additional barriers that Womxn of Colour and non binary people often face in their practice as visual artists. It aims to provide financial and developmental support to assist UK based artists and artist collectives of all ages at a key point in their career. We welcome applications from all artists who self-identify as Womxn of Colour and non binary people including those who are emerging and self- taught.
