Arts Council's Artist in the Community Scheme
Scéim An Ealaíontóra Sa Phobal
2017 Deadlines: (Round 1) Monday 27 March (Round 2) Monday 26 June
Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers grants to enable artists and communities of place and/or interest to work together on projects. The Artist in the Community Scheme (AIC) is managed by Create.
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. Projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts, for example arts and health, arts in prisons, arts and older people, arts and cultural diversity.
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. Project realisation may result in a variety of outcomes.
There are two phases to the scheme.
Research & Development, is open to artists who wish to research and develop a project in a community context.
Research & Development/Mentoring is open to artists who wish to develop a community based project and who have identified an artist mentor with whom they want to work during the research and development phase.
Project Realisation, is open to communities of interest or place (or their representative organisations) with an artist.
2017 Deadlines: (Round 1) Monday 27 March 2017; (Round 2) Monday 26 June 2017.
Collaborative Arts, Interculturalism and Human Rights
Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts
Date: Thursday April 6
Time: 11- 3
Venue: Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission 16-22 Green Street, Dublin 7
This seminar sets out to encourage discussion about the vital role the arts, and in particular collaborative arts, can play in promoting interculturalism and human rights. The seminar will lay the foundations for a common arena for tactical and strategic approaches to social justice and human rights issues through the lens of arts and cultural practice. Of interest to arts practitioners and programmers, activists, civil society groups, policy makers in area of public provision for arts access, participation and the many informal groups who are activating culturally diverse projects in different contexts, the seminar will look at the contradictions and tensions which can arise in the arena of art and activism. Does art with a human rights agenda subvert or uphold a status quo? What are the challenges for makers and collaborators within a Human Rights frame?
The seminar will feature a keynote address by artist Dr. Anthony Haughey with human rights activist Warsame Ali Garare and will include presentations, film and performance from artists and activists including visual artist Laragh Pittman, theatre maker Bisi Adigun and film maker Jijo Sebastian among others.

Sarah Browne Artist in Residence, UCD College of Social Science and Law 2017
Sarah Browne is an artist based in Ireland. She is particularly concerned with how socially engaged art projects can develop methodologies that are not solely discursive, in order to address non-verbal, bodily experiences of knowledge and justice. This primarily sculptural practice also includes writing, publishing, performance and public projects, encountered both within and outside gallery environments, as well as extensive collaboration.
