The BSR is delighted to announce a new collaboration with the Arts Council of Wales, with an initial three-year agreement. The Creative Wales–British School at Rome Fellowship will provide a valuable opportunity for an artist at a significant juncture of their career, who lives in Wales, to undertake a three-month residency in Rome.
