Next Generation Bursary Award

Next Generation Bursary Award

Thursday, 29 June 2017, 5.30pm

The purpose of the Next Generation bursary award is to support a group of promising artists across all disciplines at an early but pivotal stage in their career. Recipients will receive €15,000 and will also take part in a collective week-long residential programme in spring 2018. Joint applications and interdisciplinary applications are welcomed. The selection panel will comprise a non-voting Council Chair, two Council members, and a number of external panellists. This award is designed to support emerging artists to: 

  • Buy time to develop their work and practice
  • Support unique development needs to advance their own practice (this might be through engagement with a mentor, research, non-formal study and/or non-vocational training, collaborative partnerships, etc.). Applicants must detail the development need that would most advance his or her career at this time.

It will prioritise those who;

  • Demonstrate ambition and vision for their work 
  • Show potential to develop and strengthen a distinctive and assured creative practice
  • Show how they will benefit artistically from timely support for their artistic development;
  • Demonstrate in a compelling way how the award and financial investment of this level and at this particular time will have a transformative effect in bringing them to the next stage of their artistic development.
