About New Opportunities Award
The New Opportunities Award is a completely new award developed by New Expressions and Contemporary Visual Arts Network, working in partnership with Visual Arts South West.
NOA is resourcing six small scale, experimental or innoavative, artist-led museum interventions, selected in open competition. At least half of the awards are supporting contemporary visual artists and museums with little or no previous experience of collaboration.
NOA provides an opportunity for shared experimentation and learning. The availability of mentoring advice and support from the New Expressions team is an important aspect of the award. The projects selected for support by the scheme are part of the network of artists and museum staff taking part in New Expressions 3. During 2014 and 2015 NOA participants will be invited to take part in the New Expressions 3 programme of field visits, workshops and seminars.
