Pilot AIC Scheme Mentoring Award
Create invites expressions of interest from collaborative socially engaged artists, or artists interested in/transitioning into collaborative socially engaged arts, who wish to avail of a focused period of mentorship to develop and consolidate their practice.
The Pilot Artist Mentor Panel is funded through the Artist in the Community Scheme (AIC), managed by Create on a devolved basis for the Arts Council. The AIC Scheme is a primary vehicle for collaborative socially engaged arts practice in Ireland.
The Artist Mentor Panel sits within a suite of offerings under the Artist in the Community (AIC) Scheme. It aims to offer capacity building and arts practice development for collaborative socially engaged artists. Artist mentors will be available to emerging practitioners, ethnic minority artists, artists with first-hand experience of displacement and/or who are shaped by histories of intergenerational migration, as well as to other artists, including those seeking to engage with the AIC scheme. In this pilot, there will be five artist mentors and five artist mentees.
This opportunity is for collaborative socially engaged artists at any career stage who are seeking support from a critical friend/guide as they develop their projects. This opportunity is also for artists interested in or transitioning into collaborative, socially engaged artistic practice. For the five selected artists, the award offers a three-month period of capacity building and arts practice development through dialogue with an experienced collaborative socially engaged artist mentor.
