Artist Award Scheme 2021
Wicklow County Council Arts Office invites applications for the Artist Award Scheme 2021.
The purpose of the Artist Award Scheme is to assist artists in the development of their practice. Awards to date have been offered to artists at all stages of their careers and who live in or are originally from County Wicklow. The Artist Award Scheme has supported professional artists to develop or realise a particular body of work and/or to undertake professional development to that end. Professional practicing artists working in any artform, discipline or genre are eligible to apply to this scheme.
Proposals have included participation on short-term courses, residencies, specialist workshops, mentorship programmes. The award has been used to ‘buy time’ to develop or research a new body of work or to contribute to the costs of participation in a residency or other professional development programme or opportunity. Applications to fund third-level or on-going study are ineligible.
This award is available to all professional practising artists, in all art form areas/genres. Applicants must have been born in County Wicklow or resident there for the last three consecutive years.
