Spike Island announces 2024 Dreamtime Fellowship with Luke Jerram

Spike Island is pleased to announce the fifth edition of the Dreamtime Fellowship, a programme initiated and fully funded by Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram.

Spike Island has announced that applications are now open for the Dreamtime Fellowship 2024-25.

Bristol artists working across any media are invited to apply for this popular Fellowship, with the successful applicant being granted:

  • 24-hour access to a shared studio space at Spike Island for a year (from October 2024 to September 2025)
  • Annual membership to the Spike Island Associates network, which offers free access to regular talks, studio visits from artists, critics and curators, and peer-to-peer learning and support
  • A £5,000 bursary
  • Three one-to-one mentoring sessions with Luke Jerram throughout the year

This is a fantastic opportunity for self-led professional development, offering the chance to launch or push forward your career as an artist.

Current Dreamtime Fellow, Lou Baker said:

The bursary has been really helpful. It’s given me freedom to be more aspirational with the scale of my work as I’ve been able to be buy the tools and materials I need. It’s also paid for an online networking course.
