Artist in the Community Scheme 2020 Round One: Successful Applicants

Congratulations to all successful applicants to the AIC Scheme in 2020, who come from a range of art forms and contexts.

In recognition of the severe limitations in place due to physical distancing and the challenges this poses to artists and communities, we offered and granted Research and Development Awards only (both with and without mentoring) in Round One. Please note the changes to the AIC Scheme (Round Two) made by the Arts Council in response to Covid 19.
