The role we play in helping our region’s artistic and cultural capital to grow is reflected in the ongoing activity of our Alumni. Now with almost 300 grants awarded, BAF Alumni continue to build upon their skills and connections nationally and overseas, studying or working in their chosen field. We are inspired by their successes. Our post-award support for Alumni includes various platforms aimed to raise their profile and networks in the community and beyond.


Every month we feature a range of our alumni, and let you know what they are up to. Click on the images below to find out more.

ALUMNI CENTRAL documents and celebrates our artists’ processes and creative journeys. It is a virtual meeting-place for all past grant winners, giving them a unique audience for their work. If you are an artist that has received an award or grant from us since 2000, and would like to get involved in ALUMNI CENTRAL, please contact our Alumni liaison.
