Jason Michaels Memorial Bursary

Jason Michaels was a graduate of SPAO who passed away in 2016. Jason was an expert craftsman in the darkroom who created incredible silver gelatin prints in the SPAO darkroom; his second year project consisted of stunningly beautiful classical nudes. Jason had always expressed an interest in completing the SPAO Artist Residency.

The Jason Michaels Memorial Bursary, given at maximum once a year, will go towards supporting one artist per year who intends to complete SPAO’s Artist Residency. This bursary will provide artists with the ability to participate in the SPAO community and develop their artistic careers.
