Projects proposed in response to the Open Call may be in any artform or be cross-disciplinary. Priority will be given to projects that:
- Are large in ambition, irrespective of physical, temporal, or quantitative scale
- Engage with the public, as audience members and/or as participants.
Applicants may apply for up to €350,000. The total funding proposed for this scheme is €800,000.
The application process will be single phase. An international jury will assess and agree the projects to be supported through the Open Call. The jury will be chaired by a non-voting member of Council. Two Council members will be nominated as voting members. In addition one Irish and two internationally based experts will be voting members of the international jury.
The award is open to individuals and organisations who are resident in (the Republic of) Ireland. There are certain exceptions where the Arts Council may deem eligible applications made by those based outside (the Republic of) Ireland. However, before admitting as eligible any such application, the Arts Council would need to be satisfied that the outcomes of any such proposal would benefit the arts in (the Republic of) Ireland. Proposals received from organisations who are funded by the Arts Council under RFO, Annual Programming grants or Annual Funding grants must provide evidence that the project is exceptional and outside the remit of their funded activities.
