Thanks to our generous donors, the Arts Scholarship Programme is able to support students who are keen to develop their creative skills alongside their studies. The scholars each receive up to £1,500 as well as invitations to collaborate with like-minded peers. The programme provides opportunities for performing and development through mentoring; working with the University’s Office for the Arts and hand-selected arts professionals to develop their chosen art form further.
On 20 March, each scholar will showcase their work in Platform, University of Bath’s annual showcase which champions the arts. Over the years the event has included spoken word, classical solos and ensembles, jazz duets, dance from ballet to Latin and Ballroom, visual arts exhibitions, and performances of comedy and physical theatre.
This year’s Platform will present an extra special evening, with special guest appearances from outstanding past scholars, returning to celebrate The Edge’s 5th Anniversary Year.
We would like to thank Santander, Nick Berry, Elly Williams, Grace McQuaid, Dorothy Walters-Godfree, and Margaret Dewey for their generous contributions to the arts scholarship programme.
Each year we have been impressed with the plethora of creative talent amongst our students at University of Bath. Our arts team is dedicated to unlocking creativity amongst our community and the scholarships are such an integral part of this. We are incredibly proud that we can support individuals to continue to harness their creativity and achieve something remarkable in their chosen artform. I look forward to seeing what this year brings at Platform 2020Jamie Eastman, Director of Arts
