Deadline: 29 June, 5:30pm
The purpose of the Next Generation bursary award is to support a group of promising artists across all disciplines at an early but pivotal stage in their career. Recipients will receive €15,000 and will also take part in a collective week-long residential programme in spring 2018. Joint applications and interdisciplinary applications are welcomed. The selection panel will comprise, a non-voting Council Chair, two Council members, and a number of external panellists.
This award is designed to support emerging artists to:
- Buy time to develop their work and practice
- Support unique development needs to advance their own practice (this might be through engagement with a mentor, research, non-formal study and/or non-vocational training, collaborative partnerships, etc.).
Applicants must detail the development need that would most advance his or her career at this time.
