We’re delighted to announce the two winners of our latest Travel Bursaries for Public Art (Now).

The two bursaries of £150 each will support emerging practitioners to attend and report from the second of our Public Art (Now) Professional Development Workshop taking place in Folkestone on October 31st titled – On The Edge: Taking Risks in Public Art.

In the context of the final weekend of the Folkestone Triennial and the anticipation of the Sculpture Question Conference 1st-2nd November, this workshop offers the chance to look at how artists, producers and funders might challenge the preconceptions about public art, taking risks to produce works which open up new encounters with our surroundings.

The successful applicants were:

Adam J B Walker

Niamh O’Connor

The new texts will aim to open up the discussion and debate on the Public Art (Now) blog about when, where and how public art takes place.

Previous Public Art (Now) Travel Bursary recipients were Francesca Cavallo, Katie Anderson, Emma Panza, Clawson & Ward, Niki Russell and Field Notes. Read their reports from our first Professional Development Workshop in Liverpool at Homebaked, the Futurefarmers Bristol Live Event, and Jeremy Deller’s Sunday Service lecture on 4 May 2014.
