Arts Council Northern Ireland Honours Four Major Artists

A composer, playwright, performance artist and a visual artist have each received the Arts Council Northern Ireland’s highest accolade, with £15,000 Major Individual Artist awards.

The recipients of the awards, given in recognition of the contribution each artist has made to creative life in Northern Ireland, are: composer Professor Piers Hellawell, playwright Shannon Sickels (Yee), performance artist Sinéad O’Donnell and visual artist/filmmaker Mairéad McClean. The awards, funded through the National Lottery, make it possible for these artists to take time out to dedicate to their creative work and to produce a substantial, ambitious project that will make a significant contribution to the development of their artistic careers.
