Glasgow School of Art announces bursaries for students affected by fire
Up to a hundred fine art students who lost work in Friday’s blaze will receive the Phoenix bursaries, providing studio space for up to six months and a living allowance while they rebuild their portfolios.
The director of Glasgow School of Art, Prof Tom Inns, said:
The beating heart of the GSA is its students and our priority is to ensure that all those most seriously affected by the fire are given the opportunity to rebuild their practice.

“[Feeling] is the intention of art itself: it’s not meant to shield us from pain so much as offer a vessel through which we can cope, grow and even move past tragedy. If we warn people with a flashing red light that inside great works of literature they are likely to find pain, we do a disservice to the conversations, and the healing, meant to come through the act of reading itself.”
