The Katherine Araniello Bursaries are aimed at UK based, ‘early career’, unapologetically radical and politicised artists who work in Live Art, identify as disabled people, and whose practice embraces Katherine’s spirit and politics.

Applicants must have been practicing within Live Art, or related areas of practice, for at least five years.

To get a sense of Katherine’s spirit and politics please watch her films on YouTubeThe Disabled Avant-Garde’s films on YouTube  and read Martin O’Brien’s tribute to Katherine How Not To Do Disability.

Applicants should be committed to the possibilities of ‘live’ practices and to exploring new contexts for work or dialogues around the work.

Applicants’ potential to undertake self-determined professional development and research, and the timeliness and appropriateness of this bursary to their practice and to Live Art in general will be critical.
