Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival wishes to recognise two innovative grass roots arts projects through the Bealtaine Hero Award.
We invite applications from individuals and / or organisations who wish to create an exciting new festival event (which may be online, blended or in-person) to be presented during the Bealtaine Festival 2022. We especially invite members of marginalised or underrepresented groups to apply.
Two awards of €500 will be made to the two successful applicants.
The project/event should be led by a community organisation or individual
with a track record of organising community activities. The project/event
should include at least one professional artist working in any art form. Artists
may apply but only in partnership with a community organisation. (The award
is not intended for government-funded organisations such as local authorities,
although community groups that are working in partnership with or in receipt
of funding from local authorities are eligible.)
