Artists' Professional Development
Our aim is to support emerging talent, as well as art professionals from all backgrounds.
We collaborate with over 5000 non-member artists as part of our annual exhibitions programme, at the same time as providing university and college students with a better insight into the arts industry.
The annual ‘FBA Futures’ exhibition at Mall Galleries is the perfect platform for recent art graduates to show their work. We also offer several annual bursaries and prizes for emerging artists, including a scholarship in Rome by the Royal Society of British Artists.
We are constantly developing new schemes including residency projects, art crits, open forums and networking events in order to help artists and creative practitioners to further their skills and individual practice.
Some of our projects
