The Arts Council and Arts & Disability Ireland are delighted to announce that a second round of funding will be available through the Arts and Disability Connect scheme in 2020. Designed to support individual artists with disabilities, the Arts and Disability Connect scheme includes New Work, Mentoring and Training awards.
“The Arts Council’s commitment of additional funding for individual artists with disabilities is a huge endorsement as well as deserved recognition of their contribution to the creative voice of Ireland in a time of tremendous change. In real terms, this additional funding represents a doubling of opportunities for artists to undertake training, mentoring and new work in 2020, through the Arts and Disability Connect funding scheme which Arts & Disability Ireland manages on behalf of the Arts Council.” Arts & Disability Ireland Executive Director, Pádraig Naughton.
Application forms and guidelines for round two of Arts and Disability Connect 2020 will be available to download from Monday 07 September at www.adiarts.ie/connect.
Arts and Disability Connect deadline: Monday 19 October 2020 at 4pm.
