Adaptations is a practice development award of £2000 for artists to trial new ways of working. Artists apply with an idea to make their practice more economically sustainable.

This might include finding new ways to earn money from your practice or developing ways to make money indirectly that also feeds your practice creatively. The important thing is that the award is intended to support new approaches to sustaining your career as an artist.

Two awards of £2000 will be made. The selected artists will work alongside a researcher, acting as an informal mentor and critical friend, to help develop their ideas and produce insight for Artquest. We share what we learn about how artists might work more sustainably with other artists.
