Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava, Hi everyone
The Commonwealth Arts and Crafts Award is an award scheme for young artists and
craftspeople, sponsored by the Commonwealth Foundation. Every two years, up to ten awards
are made to craftspeople and artists, aged between 20 and 35, who show promise and
initiative in their own country but who have had little opportunity of working in another
The award, which will range between £3000 and £6000 (depending on the country being
visited and the length of the visit), is intended to help winning artists explore their
art in another Commonwealth country by working alongside other artists or within another
arts institution for a period of between three and six months. Normally the payment covers
airfares, fees, living expenses and the cost of mounting an exhibition.
Closing date: 31 March 2005
