Open Call | Body&Soul Festival Design Bursary 2019

Application deadline: Friday 25 January 2019, 23:59.

Body&Soul Bursary Grants are designed to fulfil the artistic and decorative requirements for the festival in 2019 and beyond, while providing artists an opportunity to fulfil a proposed project and present new work to a large audience in an outdoor environment. Bursaries are geared towards professional artists, technicians, production managers and creatives working in a relevant sector, with experience in delivering similar projects on budget and on time. Body&Soul encourage submissions that develop a high-quality, imaginative artistic practice; and can reach and engage with diverse audiences.

If you have questions regarding any bursary, please contact; further details as well as relevant 2d and 3d Stage plans are available on request from

While Body&Soul promote full artistic expression without boundaries, they ask for proposals to adhere to terms of cost and safety.

Body&Soul will make final decisions based upon your level of expertise, vision and ability to work within deadlines and small budgets.

Each year the festival fully funds certain Creative Projects, be they Venues, Art Installations or Performances. Outside of these bursaries it is only in certain circumstances that they cover more than materials and transportation expenses. Any funding you raise and contribute may also help realise your works full potential. Any agreed funds provided by Body&Soul must be invoiced post event and details of information required will be provided prior to this. Please also be aware that you will need to provide food for yourself and your crew on site as Body&Soul does not cover this.

Health & Safety.
Once a proposal is under consideration, Body&Soul will send out a detailed health and safety document that must be fully completed by you and signed off on by our site manager in order for it to be accepted.
