CePRA funding for external visiting practice researchers

There is no deadline for this scheme. This is an open call and applications will be considered on a rolling basis until: Monday 12th December 2022 when the scheme will pause.

Applications are encouraged from staff or PGRs in the faculty of AHC who are seeking to engage an external artist / practitioner to facilitate or participate in an online workshop, presentation, keynote, network event, or online collaboration. The funding will normally cover a flat ‘artist fee’ or a similar one-off payment, with no further payment of expenses or other costs.

Funding Limits and criteria:

  • Proposals will be subject to a £500 maximum funding limit for in-person and hybrid events, and a £200 limit for online events
  • Successful proposals will fund activities relating to practice research in the Arts.
  • Proposals should identify clear potential benefits to the development of practice or knowledge of practice for one or more research communities at Leeds.
  • Applications must be led by staff and/or PGRs based within the faculty of AHC
  • CePRA funding will aim to represent practice research activities from a broad range of disciplines within the faculty of AHC; multiple applications to fund a single project are discouraged and are likely to be rejected[1]
  • Applications that help to address the broad agenda of decolonisation are encouraged
