The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2016 aims to support individual professional filmmakers working in the area of collaborative film. The Arts Council provides this €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, on behalf of the Arts Council.
The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at a filmmaker who has a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest. The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected filmmaker with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect on practice. More particularly, the Bursary allows the filmmaker to consider key questions associated with creating film using collaborative methodologies.
It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider film community and collaborative arts sector. Create will work in partnership with Filmbase in providing information sessions and on the selection process.
