Are you involved in an arts and health project? Would you like to showcase your work to a larger audience?
The national arts and health website invites applications for a €4000 bursary to produce a short film, audio documentary or publication about an arts and health project.
Applications are invited from artists working in healthcare settings, healthcare professionals, arts and health organisations/partnerships and others working in the field of arts and health.
The documentation bursary aims to:
- Showcase arts and health practice to national audiences
- Raise awareness around the impact of arts and health practice
- Inspire artists, healthcare staff and health service users involved in arts and health projects.
This bursary is applicable to the documentation of arts and health projects across all artforms and arts practice areas (participatory arts, performance arts, environmental enhancement initiatives) in the Republic of Ireland.

artsandhealth.ie is the national website for arts and health in Ireland, managed by Waterford Healing Arts Trust. The artsandhealth.ie documentation bursary 2022 is funded by the HSE and the Arts Council.
Anyone responsible for delivering/co-delivering an arts and health project in the Republic of Ireland may apply for this award.
The documentation bursary was paused in 2020 and 2021 due to the unique challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic in delivering and documenting arts experiences for healthcare communities. Many arts and health projects continue to use remote forms of engagement in line with Covid-related restrictions in healthcare settings. Applicants will therefore need to demonstrate how they intend to document their work considering these shifts in practice and ongoing health and safety measures.
