Jerwood Fellowships was an Imaginate project in partnership with Oily Cart and funded by Jerwood Arts which offered professional development support for four artists over two years to explore new performance ideas with a focus on supporting D/deaf and/or disabled artists and children.

The four Jerwood Fellows were Emily Nicholl, Claire Eliza Willoughby, Ellen Renton and Craig McCulloch.  

Jerwood Fellowships are funded by Jerwood Arts, the leading independent funder dedicated to supporting UK artists, curators and producers to develop and thrive. They enable transformative opportunities for individuals across art forms, supporting imaginative awards, bursaries, fellowships, projects, programmes and commissions. They present new work and bring people from across the arts together through our exhibitions and events in London, as well as across the UK.

The Fellowships are part of Imaginate’s ongoing programme for artists supporting the development of new performance ideas for young audiences.  If you would like to find out more about the work we do with artists and schools please contact Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director.
