The Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award is an initiative of the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme, managed by Create.
This Bursary is offered in the area of Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity and is offered in partnership with the Immigrant Council of Ireland. It is designed to support individual professional artists whose practice centres on collaboration with individuals or groups (non-arts professionals).
The AIC Bursary Award 2021: Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity specifically aims to support an individual professional artist working in collaborative socially engaged arts practice who has first-hand experience of displacement and/or is shaped by histories of intergenerational migration. For this bursary, candidates may or may not self-identify as refugee, migrant or otherwise through lived experience and/or second generational memories.
The purpose of the award is to support and nurture professional arts practice; it is aimed at an artist with a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest. The bursary of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to engage with and reflect on their practice. More particularly, it allows the artist to consider key questions associated with their practice using collaborative methodologies.
It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the bursary with the wider collaborative arts sector. Create will work in partnership with the Immigrant Council of Ireland to provide an information session on the selection process.
The closing date for applications is 5pm, Monday the 16th of August.
Full details of the award, as well as the application procedure, are available at www.create.ie
