We have a new and exciting opportunity for graduates from Lancashire and Lancashire colleges and universities.

The Whitaker invites submissions for an exhibition opportunity for a new arts graduate from Lancashire, who either studied in and graduated from a Lancashire college, or is from Lancashire and graduated with an arts degree this year, 2022.

The Whitaker is committed to supporting talent in Lancashire and celebrating the success of our artists who are from or have studied here.

Our successful new graduate, or graduates, will be invited to exhibit in our Gallery 1 space at The Whitaker. The Gallery will be available to the artist from late December 2022 until mid February 2023.

Full details and submission instructions.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 5 September at 5pm.

All applications will be assessed by a panel of arts experts.

The applications will be judged on the quality of the work submitted, the best fit in regards to our wider context, themes and approach of the museum. We will also consider the potential benefit to the artist.

A tour is offered to all interested artists at 6pm Thursday 25th August.
