Fine Art Step Change Fellowship Programme

Fine Art at Swansea College of Art are working in partnership with Artist Benevolent Fund for the second year running to support successfully awarded Fine Art graduates through providing a 12-month fellowship, a grant, studio space, access to workshop facilities and departmental support.

“Our Fine Art programme provides a direct connection between the international platforms of contemporary practice and the students dedicated studio space situated in our Dynevor building, at the heart of Swansea city centre. We support and enable students to leave with a broad skill set and the ability to make decisions with confidence into whatever art-related field they choose. As Fine Art staff, we are international practitioners therefore connected to a great many art-based networks which can often highlight opportunities for our students. These Fellowships are an example of this wider network that we as staff are involved in.”
