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, 2023.

Full details and submission instructions.

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 mid-December 2023 to early March 2024.

This opportunity is open to artists who have graduated from arts degree courses in 2023 at a course in a Lancashire-based college or University.

Artists who are from Lancashire and have graduated from arts courses taken outside of Lancashire in 2023 are also eligible to apply.
