One To One – Individual Artists’ Bursaries in Live Art 2005/2006

The Live Art Development Agency is delighted to announce that seven London based artists have been awarded One To One bursaries of £8,800 each.

The One To One bursaries provide artistic and professional development opportunities for individual practitioners engaged with Live Art.  The bursary recipients will each undertake a self determined programmes of activity that will stimulate new ideas, develop different ways of working and ultimately enhance their artistic practice.

Uniquely, the framework and guidelines for the One To One bursaries were devised in response to the findings of a series of artists' focus groups run by the Live Art Development Agency annually since summer 2001.

This year's selection panel consisted of Cathy Butterworth of the Bluecoat Arts Centre, Ali Zaidi of motiroti, artists and academics Joshua Sofaer and David Gale, and Lois Keidan and Daniel Brine of the Live Art Development Agency.  Paula Brown of Arts Council England, London attended as an observer.

One To One was instigated by London Arts in 1999.  The scheme is managed by the Live Art Development Agency with funding from Arts Council England, London.
