Established in 2017 and now in its seventh edition, The FLAMIN Fellowship has provided specialist support to a range of artists who have gone on to achieve major solo exhibitions, win awards and screen in competition at international film festivals.

The FLAMIN Fellowship offers a unique opportunity in developing professional artistic practice with a series of monthly workshops, which cover key areas including selling artwork, film festival strategy, writing funding applications, archiving your work, sound design, insurance, copyright and sustaining a practice.
