Purpose of the award
The purpose of this award is to:
- Honour Countess Constance de Markievicz — herself an artist and radical— as the first woman to be elected to parliament; and to
- Provide support for artists from all backgrounds and genres to buy time and space in order to develop new work that reflects on the role of women in the period covered by the decade of centenaries 2012-23, and beyond.
Markievicz Award recipients will receive €20,000, and awards will be made to up to five applicants each year. Joint applications are welcomed.
The award is administered by the Arts Council on behalf of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and is open via a public call to artists working in all arts genres supported by the Arts Council.
