With the onset of Covid 19, artists and arts organisations working in the Arts and Health and Arts and Disability sectors have been seeking ways to engage with participants and services to continue their practice. These two commissions with a budget of €5,000 each are aimed at supporting an artist/arts organisation who work or intends to work with people in either the field of Arts and Health or Arts and Disability in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County.
dlr Arts Office proposes to offer these commissions to allow an artist or an arts organisation the time, space and reflection to continue to find and develop new ways of forging their practice with some of our most vulnerable residents.
These opportunities are funded by the Arts Council and supported by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
