Roscommon County Council, together with the Arts Council of Ireland, is pleased to announce increased funding for artists in 2022 under the annual Artist Bursary Programme.
Professional artists either currently living in the county or who were born here, are eligible to apply.
“This programme is designed to further the development of professional practitioners in all art forms, for any purpose that will demonstratively contribute to the artist’s development.” Rhona McGrath, Arts Officer, told us. “We understand that funding to artists is especially critical in the current climate and we are looking for quality applications which will benefit the artists and in turn the cultural life of County Roscommon.”
The Artist Bursary Awards provide financial support to professional artists to allow them to develop their practice. The award can be used towards the costs of attending courses, mentoring, developing new work, investment in equipment, participation in exhibitions and various other activities.
Applications are assessed by an external expert and awards made on their recommendation.
Applications can only be accepted via Roscommon County Council’s My Online Services
