Arts & Disability Ireland are delighted to announce recipients of the Art & Disability Connect Scheme 2019. A total of €30,500 was awarded to 14 artists.
The Art & Disability Connect Scheme is specifically targeted at individual artists with disabilities and offers artists the opportunity to: connect with other practitioners or venues; make a change in their practice; ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale; reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring and training.
Pádraig Naughton, Executive Director, Arts & Disability Ireland, says “The awards will give 14 artists with disabilities in Ireland the opportunity to realise their creative vision, enter exciting collaborations and acquire new skills”.
This scheme is offered annually with the next round being offered in 2020.
Arts and Disability Connect is funded by the Arts Council and managed by Arts & Disability Ireland.
