In 2016 Jerwood Charitable Foundation marks ten years of Jerwood Visual Arts, its national programme supporting visual arts practice. Since the inception of the programme in 2006, it has channelled a total of £4m to the visual arts, working with more than 1200 artists, writers and curators from across the UK and supporting a wealth of research and new commissions which now reaches audiences of over 76,000 a year.

This month Jerwood Charitable and Forestry Commission England announce the five artists selected to develop proposals for a new £30,000 commission through Jerwood Open Forest.
