Bursary Award 2017: Art and Activism

The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2017 aims to support collaborative artists working in the area of art and activism. The Arts Council has provided this €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create.

The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at an artist who has a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest. The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect on practice. More particularly, the Bursary allows the artist to consider key questions associated with art and activist practice using collaborative methodologies.

Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2016: Collaborative Film – recipient

Create is delighted to announce Eoin Heaney has been awarded the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2016: Collaborative Film. 

Eoin is a filmmaker interested in total environments that envelop the viewer in image and sound. Whether capturing behavioural esoterica or dealing with more civic minded topics his work intends to celebrate cinema, its poetry and latitude for open ended reflection, and hopefully influence people to think progressively about the lives they’re living.
