The National Library of Scotland is offering six bursaries to support creative reinterpretations of old school examination papers.
Up to £1,000 is available for 21st-century artists to use school exam papers from the 1930s to 1960s as a source of inspiration.
The Library is looking for dance, musical and artistic interpretations of the exams as a way of highlighting the potential for re-using its collections:
- Dance — 2 opportunities to create a dance show based on a 1932 geometry exam
- Visual arts — 2 opportunities to create a painting, collage or similar based on an exam paper from 1937 or 1938
- Musical performance — 2 opportunities for a punk, indie or choral / choir interpretation of a 1962 Maths exam.
Tuesday 23 January is the closing date for applications. For more information, read the exam papers bursaries media release.
