Applications are now open for the third round of the Lina Bo Bardi Fellowship.

The Fellowship, a four-year programme supporting architects and designers interested in exploring the work of Lina Bo Bardi in Brazil, seeks to raise awareness and understanding of Lina Bo Bardi’s important contribution to architecture, culture and society; to widen and deepen the understanding of Bo Bardi’s work internationally; and to create long-term connections between the UK and Brazil, and between British and Brazilian architects, designers and artists.

For this round, UK-based practitioners working in fields other than Architecture and Design are also invited to apply (e.g. dance, performance or choreography; history, social sciences or philosophy).

Fellows are supported with a travel grant and accommodation for a 4-6 week trip to Brazil, as well as mentoring, advice and contacts from Lina Bo Bardi scholars, the British Council and Brazilian partners. In a second phase, the Fellow may be awarded seed-funding to pursue a project in the UK that builds on their research in Brazil.

The Lina Bo Bardi Fellowship is organised by the British Council, and supported by SESC SP and Instituto Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi.
