Wicklow County Council announces the closing date for submissions to the 6th Strategic Projects application process. The Arts Office invites applications from artists, national resource organisations, individual curators, and/or artist collectives who have the potential to propose projects which will nurture practice, create connectivity, generate new perspectives and voices within County Wicklow and support a diversity of approach.
In 2019 there will be two streams of application:
A. New applicants and proposals
B. Consolidation/development of strategic projects previously awarded under this scheme
Under Stream A proposals should be for new initiatives which add significant value to arts practice, experience and participation in Wicklow and support the Arts Office strategic goals. Under Stream B as the Scheme has now been in operation for a six year period, we will also consider repeat applications for existing recipients who wish to consolidate or develop an area of practice previously awarded under this Scheme. This is relevant only where the work previously awarded under the Scheme has supported new practice in the following areas – arts and health, dance and community, early years, arts and disability and visual arts engagement.
The Scheme is open to individuals and organisations from across all arts disciplines, and applicants need not be based in County Wicklow. Reflecting the balance of other elements of the Arts Office programme, the Arts Office would particularly welcome strong applications in the artform areas of literature, film, dance, artist development, music and the visual arts.
For more information and application details see: Wicklow Strategic Projects 2019.
