Are YOU a Visual or Performing Artist who would like help to develop your artistic career?

PAW, very generously supported by the late John Flower, has established a fund to encourage artists in Purbeck, aged 16+, of any art discipline, whether Visual or Performing, to further their artistic career through a one-off Bursary Award to help with their next career step.

We have made awards to help develop careers in painting, life-drawing, print-making, photography, music, ballet, contemporary dance, opera singing and silversmithing.

You could be next!

If you would like to be considered for an award or would like more information please contact us:
