Each year Spike Island offers fellowships to promising graduates. Artists are selected from an open call and offered studio space at Spike Island, access to our facilities, support from our programme team and free membership to Spike Island Associates for the year. This opportunity aims to support and encourage artists in Bristol as they begin to develop their professional practices.

We are excited to introduce our Graduate Fellows for 2023–24: Harry Judge (UWE Bristol), Lolly Deazley (UWE Bristol), Max Silliton (UWE Bristol) and Lola Bennett (Bath Spa University). They will also be joined by the 2023–24 Dreamtime Fellow, Lou Baker. The Dreamtime Fellowship is a programme funded and supported by established Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram.

This event sees our new Fellows introduce themselves and their practices, alongside our outgoing Graduate Fellows 2022–23: Rosie Bales (UWE Bristol), Velvet Butler Carroll (UWE Bristol), Joseph De Sousa (UWE Bristol) and Cara Evans (Bath Spa University), as well as Rosie Bayliss, the 2022–23 Dreamtime Fellow. They share the work they have produced during their Fellowship at Spike Island as well as their aspirations for the future.

Join us for drinks and networking with the Spike Island community to wish best of luck to our outgoing Fellows and welcome in the new Graduates.
