The Liam O’Flynn Award 2021
The Liam O’Flynn award for traditional artists is now open for applications.
The purpose of the Liam O’Flynn Award is to provide a traditional artist with a period of artistic reflection, inspiration and creation in residence in the National Concert Hall and to enhance appreciation, knowledge and enjoyment of the traditional arts across the rich milieu of the National Concert Hall.
For the Liam O’Flynn Award recipients, it will provide career-changing artistic opportunities, including the chance to work with a wide range of artistic collaborators in a supportive and professional environment where they will be positioned alongside high-performing artists from other genres and where there is high expectation of creative outputs.
The NCH and Arts Council Liam O’Flynn Award consists of:
– An award of 15,000 Euro will be offered to one artist to create new work at NCH
– The work(s) will be performed as part of Tradition Now
– The award will support new ways of conceiving music
– The successful artist will be located at the NCH and the award will support collaborations with the other resident musicians at NCH (e.g. Crash Ensemble, RTÉ NSO, Chamber Choir Ireland)
