Guidance for the British School at Athens Arts Bursary and Residency for UAL PhD Students: 2018-19


The British School at Athens (BSA) and Research at Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon embarked on a joint initiative in 2015/16. Until 2021/22, an annual arts residency in Greece, supported by a bursary and with studio and accommodation provided, will be offered to practice-based PhD students at UAL. This scheme furthers the BSA’s mission to support UK-based researchers within its broad arts, humanities, and social sciences remit.

 

The BSA, founded in 1886, maintains facilities in Athens which include the Director’s house (with a studio recently created in the roof space); the main building, housing library, archive, museum, common rooms, hostel rooms, kitchen, dining room, and administration; a hostel annexe; the Assistant Director’s apartment; and a laboratory for science-based archaeology. The BSA has a relaxed atmosphere enabling researchers to cross-fertilize their own different fields of interest, as well as to make links with local interests.

 

The selected student will offer an introductory lecture at the start of their residency at the School and host an open studio event at some point during their residency. The Student will also offer a lecture at Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon on returning from the Residency.
