Artist in the Community Scheme – Research and Development Award (with mentoring)

Monday, 26 September 2022, 5.00pm

Are you an artist working collaboratively with a community? Are you an artist or community group with an interest in working on a collaborative, socially engaged project?

The Arts Council’s Artist in the Community (AIC) Scheme, managed by Create, offers awards to enable artists and communities of place and/or interest to work together on projects. The AIC Scheme also offers an annual bursary, as well as residencies and a summer school. The AIC scheme is open to artists from any of the following artform disciplines: architecture, circus, street art and spectacle, dance, film, literature (Irish and English language), music, opera, theatre, visual arts and traditional arts.

The aim of the AIC scheme is to encourage meaningful collaboration between communities of place and/or interest and artists. It is essential that consultation take place between the artist and the community, so that both parties are involved in deciding on the nature of the project’s realisation. Group ownership of the art should be maintained at every stage.

The Research & Development Award with Mentoring is open to artists who wish to develop a community based project and who have identified an artist mentor to work with. The maximum award is €3,500, of which €1,000 is specifically to engage a mentor for the artist. The maximum timeframe is 6 months.
