Financial support schemes announced

For the 2016 AoMO conference, hosted by IEDC-Bled School of Management (Slovenia), AoMO is offering 4 bursaries to support PhD students and/or artists who have had a contribution (paper, workshop, installation, performance, etc.) accepted for the conference.

In addition, 2016 will see the launch of the Heather Höpfl Artist in Residence scholarship. This is a prestigious award in remembrance of the work Heather undertook in developing our collective field of interest – the relationship between management and the arts.

Read on for more information of both schemes.

AoMO Bursaries

What does it include?

The bursary is for £250. This will be paid directly into the successful applicants’ bank account by AoMO and can therefore be used to cover travel, the conference fee or art materials.

Who can apply?

The bursary scheme is open to PhD students and practising artists. Within the application you must make a clear argument as to how the bursary would be used and why you feel you are deserving of it. You must also have had a contribution to the conference accepted, and be in receipt of the acceptance letter sent by the conference host organising team.

How to apply

You will need to complete a bursary application form and email this directly to admin@artofmanagement.org. Application forms have been circulated via the mailing list, and you can also download a copy of the application form here.

The closing date for applications is 30th April 2016. All decisions will be made and communicated by the 1st June 2016.

Successful bursary applicants will need to provide their acceptance letter from the host organising team and receipt of registration and conference fee payment. AoMO will not transfer the funds to your account before you have registered and paid the appropriate conference fee.

The Heather Höpfl Artist in Residence Scholarship

To commemorate Heather’s contribution to AoMO we are offering a special opportunity that Heather would no doubt support. The Heather Höpfl Artist in Residence scholarship will offer one artist an opportunity to document, in their chosen medium, the activities, energy, atmosphere and contributions to the AoMO 2016 conference. They will be given a plenary slot within the programme to introduce their work and plans for their ‘final piece’.

What does it include?

The applicable conference fee will be waivered, your accommodation for the nights of the conference will be paid for and there will be a contribution made to your travel costs and art-materials required where relevant.

Responsibilities of the Artist in Residence

You must commit to holding the Artist in Residence position for two years (until the following AoMO conference in 2018). Over that two year period you may be asked to do interviews, give advice and support other artists within the community and be open to meeting with business practitioners to showcase your work and the work of the community.

You must present your work and approach at a plenary session at the conference in 2016. Over the two year residency we would like you to produce a ‘final piece’ which will be exhibited at the 2018 conference, including a plenary slot for presentation.

Who can apply?

Any artists, artist practitioner or academic-artist may apply for the scholarship. You must have a portfolio of work that you can submit in support of your application but this can be in the medium of your choice e.g. poetry, dance, drawing, painting, digital media etc.

How to apply

You must supply a written statement of no more than 2000 words describing why you would be a suitable candidate for the scholarship and what you envisage as your contribution. We would also like to see examples of your work in support of that application.

The closing date for applications is 31st March 2016. All decisions will be made and communicated by 31st May 2016.

All applications must be forwarded to Stella at AoMO directly. Please email admin@artofmanagement.org for more information. Stella will confirm receipt of all applications.
