Luke Jerram receives Clark Bursary


The 6th UK Digital Art Award of £17,500 is the largest to date and will enable Luke to develop his career and proposed ideas through a supported residency at Watershed, a leading public media centre in Bristol.

Luke will document, present and discuss his work in progress, online and through events and exhibition, to engage audiences throughout the development process. With additional input from key partners such as Situations, a research and commissioning programme at the University of the West of England, Luke will benefit from a responsive network of support and facilitation.

Over 70 applications were made to the Bursary and following shortlisting and interviews Luke was selected. An expert panel participated in the selection process including ARC Co-directors Chris Byrne and Iliyana Nedkova; Helen Cole, Producer of Live Art and Dance at Arnolfini, Bristol; and Anthony Rowe, artist and previous recipient of the Clark Bursary.

The Bursary is funded by J A Clark Charitable Trust, Watershed, and Arts Council England South West. In association with the University of the West of England, Bristol.
