Bryan Parsons is a British artist and educator. Bryan studied at the University of Gloucestershire and the Slade School of Fine Art. After completing his Master’s, Bryan began a career in arts education, working for numerous schools and colleges, as well as developing a project to connect professional artists with schoolchildren in Hackney, allowing artists to design and run workshops that both give them the opportunity to consider their practice, and help children gain experience of and access to careers in the arts.

Adrian Carruthers Award

The Adrian Carruthers Award is a partnership between Acme and the Slade School of Fine Art, funded by the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Fund and Acme. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
