‘Hands On’ $4000 Bursary – APPLICATIONS CLOSE

January 20

Funded by the Artspace Mackay Foundation, the ‘Hands On’ Bursary is a significant $4,000 in 2020. The Bursary was Initiated to support and encourage young people aged 17-25yrs, originating from the Mackay region, who wish to pursue a career in the arts. The bursary pays tribute to one of Mackay’s celebrated artists, the late Rick Wood and recognises his service and enthusiasm for the arts. Through this bursary, Artspace Mackay Foundation are seeking applicants who demonstrate the same enthusiasm, and dedication to succeed in their chosen field.


To be eligible for the ‘Hands On’ Bursary, you must be a local resident either currently studying, or have applied to study with a recognised arts tertiary course in 2020. This includes any aspect of visual arts or creative industry. All young artists interested in applying for the bursary must provide the foundation with a letter outlining why they should be considered, a resume of artistic achievements, and a disc containing images of works.


Now in its eleventh year, the ‘Hands On’ Bursary has a long list of past recipients who have found the financial aid provided by the award invaluable. To learn more, follow the event link.
