Niamh O'Loughlin Niamh O'Loughlin- Artist Research Bursary


Niamh O'Loughlin is undertaking a remote research process supported by an Artist Research Bursary

Her research will take place between January and February 2022

Niamh says:

"Isobel Gowdie is a mysterious lady and occasionally, a hare. This research will be an exploration into Scotland's most famous witch's confessions. I will use alternative ways of working, inspired by the pandemic, to discover what these may offer moving forward. This will be a collaboration with Zoe Katsilerou.


The Artist Research Bursaries are a programme of support introduced by The Work Room in response to the ongoing and precarious position of freelance dance artists during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly artist members who are facing new or heightened barriers to accessing a studio practice. The bursary awards support members with flexible, remote research time to sustain and deepen their artistic practice in these uncertain times. The support is offered without a required outcome although The Work Room will support members to share or disseminate research where appropriate.


This research bursary is made possible with support from Jerwood Arts’ Commissioning for the Future Fund. Jerwood Arts Black and White text logo
