Call for Proposals: Diverse Actions Leadership Bursaries 2019/20

The Live Art Development Agency (LADA) is offering two Leadership Bursaries of £10,000 each for artists and/or arts workers from culturally diverse backgrounds (BME: Black and Minority Ethnic) as part of Live Art UK’s three-year Diverse Actions programme.


The bursaries aim to support a new generation of ‘skilled-up’ leaders and new models of leadership which will have an impact across the arts. To support a year-long programme of activity in 2019/20.


“Through Diverse Actions, I have been able to spend time and energy, been able to buy the books and materials I needed, to travel across continents to engage with the artists and thinkers challenging systems, forms and borders. I have seen an appreciable increase in my hourly/day rate, making my artistic practice more sustainable, and have grown my professional network and the international reach of my creative work. My practice feels re-energised, more stable and confident, and I am so grateful for the support which made this progress possible.” - Season Butler, 2017/18 Diverse Actions Leadership Bursary recipient


“The Diverse Actions Leadership Bursary has helped me to advance my practice at a really crucial moment. It has allowed me to develop important skills, dedicate mental and physical space to my work, connect to other artists, facilitate space to grow networks and continue several important projects which I otherwise would not have been able to.” - Victoria Sin, 2018/19 Diverse Actions Leadership Bursary recipient
