Young Artist Bursary (YAB) Mentoring Programme
A 6-month programme of mentoring for recent graduates with a connection to Dumfries and Galloway
Over 4 years (2012 - 2015) the Spring Fling Young Artists Bursary Mentoring Programme provided 6 months of mentoring for recent graduates of UK art schools. The graduates were mentored by professional experienced artists in the run up to and beyond Spring Fling. As part of this programme the young artists are awarded a bursary to create new work.
The project was supported by the Holywood Trust and the Archie Sutter Watt Trust.
From 2015 this programme will become Emerge, offering a year long period of mentoring and opportunities for recent graduates.
