Rita Harris Studio Award

The Rita Harris Award was in memory of artist and former Acme studio holder, Rita Harris, and took place between 2008-2017. It was one of two studio alternating awards for an Acme tenant, along with the Jessica Wilkes Award. It provided artists with full rent relief on their Acme studio for one year, mentoring support and a bursary to support their practice over the year.
