The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2017 aims to support individual professional artists working in the area of collaborative art and activism. 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 an artist who has a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest. The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect on practice. More particularly, the Bursary allows the artist to consider key questions associated with arts and activism using collaborative methodologies.
It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider activist community and collaborative arts sector. Create will work in partnership with The Fire Station Artists’ Studios in providing information sessions and on the selection process.
