As part of The Teviot, the Flag and the Rich, Rich Soil, our programme exploring the pasts, presents and futures of Hawick and the Scottish Borders and investigating the town and wider region’s cultural identities in relation to land, water, industry, territory, place and environment, Alchemy is offering a number of bursaries to Borders-based artists. These bursaries will support a range of community-oriented projects between July 2021 and December 2022.


Kerry Jones is a Scottish Borders-based multimedia artist and curator whose practice encompasses film, sound, archive, manipulated still images and site-specific interactions. She is a founding member of Moving Image Makers Collective, an active member of the autonomous artists network Collective Nonsense and collectively curates Films For Change, a series of climate-oriented film screenings and discussions based in Hawick.

This bursary will support Kerry’s project Moving Images – a solar-powered cinema in a caravan hosting experimental film, artists’ moving image, social and environmental justice films and filmmaking workshops.
