Call for Applications

The Rising Stars 2018: call for applications (students and recent graduates)

Rising Stars is a curated, national platform to foster and champion students and recent graduates from BA and MA crafts, design and applied arts programmes across the UK. Rising Stars aims to offer new makers their first step into the market place, through a curated, selling exhibition.

The programme will consist of the Rising Stars exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, that enables new makers to access the market place and collectors; professional development including knowledge transfer and skills exchange, a national symposium; and a catalogue to act as a promotional tool for the selected makers. There will also be a professional development award of £500 and a solo exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery in 2019 for one of the makers in the exhibition.

Rising Stars 2018 is supported by Billmeir Charitable Trust.

Deadline is 4 January 2018, 9am. There is no fee to apply.

Information is available online at:

Rising Stars is organised by the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham, Surrey, in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts.
