We are creating 18 paid opportunities for local Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 illustrators giving them a boost to their early careers.

3 Artists in Residence – September to late November

5 Special Commissions – over the summer

10 Artist facilitators – over the summer (working with community groups to decorate their monkeys)


Applications for these opportunities have now closed.


Illustrators responding to these opportunities must have finished study at a Tees Valley education institution in either 2020 or 2021, or have finished their study elsewhere and returned home to the Tees Valley.
