Stephen Cripps’ Studio Award at High House Production Park

Deadline: 5pm Friday 22 January 2016.

Application: The third Stephen Cripps’ Studio Award runs for one year from 1 September 2016 to 31 August 2017.

The deadline for applications is 5.00pm Friday 22 January 2016 with interviews for short-listed artists on Tuesday 1 March 2016.

The Stephen Cripps’ Studio Award is a major creative development opportunity. It provides a resource and support structure from which artists can develop their practice and realise and present planned or new projects.

The award, based at new-build, purpose-designed studios at High House Production Park, Thurrock, not only celebrates the work of Stephen Cripps, an important ‘pyrotechnic sculptor’, but also helps make manifest the vision for the Park and the potential for creative collaboration between its partners: High House Production Park Ltd, the Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop, the National Skills Academy Creative & Cultural Backstage Training Centre and Acme Studios.

The initial programme consists of three one-year awards, running from October 2013. Each award provides:
– a rent-free large ground-floor ‘production’ studio
– a £10,000 bursary
– £10,000 towards project realisation costs.

To ensure that as many artists as possible in the UK will be able to benefit from the award, the selected artist may also opt to rent a work/live space within the studio building during the award year.

The Award is funded by Acme Studios, The Henry Moore Foundation, High House Production Park Ltd and Stephen Cripps’s family.
