Application Feedback Sessions with CCA x Jerwood = Supports


We're pleased to announce that CCA x Jerwood = Supports has launched a new strand of application feedback sessions for artists, with 12 of these sessions taking place in summer in line with Arts Council of Northern Ireland's Support for Individual Practitioners grants coming out.

These sessions offer artists two hours of bespoke support making applications that might require a range of material, such as CVs, artist statements, proposals, budgets, and support material. This opportunity is for artists who are not currently in any type of formal education who have begun their professional practice.

Throughout 2023, 30 slots will be available. 12 of these are ring-fenced for summer, and the remaining 18 will be spread throughout the year, with two 2-hour sessions available per month from March-December.

Whilst each artist and application will be different, the two hour slots could be broken down across two sessions as follows:

  • 30 minutes of initial reading, followed by 30 minutes of discussion between artist and reviewer

  • Then, some days later, 30 minutes of final reading and 30 minutes of further feedback

To book:

Please email Laura on to book your slot. These will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. It is imagined that the feedback sessions will take place via Zoom, however, we will make any reasonable adjustments to accommodate access requirements.


We welcome and encourage applications from artists from marginalised backgrounds.

Should the artist and reviewer agree to meet in person, CCA Supports x Jerwood can support travel costs and any access requirements such as childcare. Applicants with access requirements applying for opportunities are warmly invited to email Laura on to let us know of any access requirements you may have to reduce any barriers in making your application or participating in the programme.
