ANU School of Art & Design’s successful Emerging Artists Support Scheme (EASS) has been operating for over thirty years. Many of our patrons have supported School of Art & Design undergraduate and postgraduate students during this period. Through this scheme patrons can award prizes, scholarships and commissions, and acquire artworks for their collections. Our School greatly appreciates this support from the ACT community.
Such generous sponsorship from individuals, families, local business, and corporate sector and arts organisations represents assistance for graduating artists when it is most valuable – at the beginning of their independent studio practice. The scheme also plays a significant role in encouraging emerging practitioners to remain in the region, and residencies and exhibition opportunities offered by local arts organisations play a key role in building Canberra’s wealth of practising artists.
