Jerwood supports Take it Outside

Jerwood awards grant of £42,947 to support Take It Outside, a new artist development programme led by 101 Outdoor Arts – National Centre for Arts in Public Space.

101 Outdoor Arts are looking for six extraordinary individuals who will lead innovation and artform development over the next decade, creating outstanding new work of international quality for outdoor contexts. Each artist will identify a project or approach to making work that they would like to develop over the two-year programme leading to a sharing.

Participants in Take It Outside will take part in a number of supported residencies at 101 Outdoor Arts between September 2023 and September 2025. They will be able to take full advantage of the centre’s unique rehearsal, fabrication and living facilities. Over two years, participants will receive a bursary award plus support for mentoring and project development.


Simon Chatterton, Strategic Lead at 101 Outdoor Arts said,

The funding from Jerwood Arts is fabulous news – it has helped us design the kind of support for emerging artists that we have felt has always been needed. It feels like there is a real synergy between both our organisations in terms of commitment to artist development and we’re really excited to see where this partnership goes.
