Exploring and Thinking is a collaborative framework for early childhood arts in the Dublin region. It came about in 2016 when the four Dublin Local Authorities partnered for the first time to collectively consider early childhood arts provision.
The first Exploring and Thinking Partnership Bursary Awards were allocated in 2019, funding a range of supports for artists such as postgraduate studies, development of an educational resource, travel to a renowned early years programme, practice based research and workshops.
Bursary Range: €500 – €5,000
Purpose of the Bursary Award
Early childhood arts includes a wide range of different art practices and creative experiences with/for children aged 0-5 in different contexts.
The Exploring and Thinking Bursary Award supports individual professional artists to develop their artistic practice working with and/or producing work for early childhood arts.
