Jessica Wilkes Award
The Jessica Wilkes Award was in memory of artist and former Acme tenant, Jessica Wilkes, and took place between 2008-16. It was one of two studio alternating awards for an Acme tenant, along with the Rita Harris 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.
