The Arts Council will hold an information clinic in association with Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, on Friday 12th May from 11am – 1pm in VISUAL, Carlow and on Wednesday 7th June at 2pm in Limerick City Gallery of Art.

The clinic is taking place in advance of the deadline for the Arts Council Arts Participation Bursary Award, which is on Thursday 13 July at 5.30pm.The objective of the Arts Participation Bursary Award is to support individual professional artists in any artform, whose practice centres on collaboration with groups of people in any of the following contexts: health, disability, cultural diversity, older people, and communities of place or interest. The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development that is derived from an extended process of engagement with their practice and seeks to provide artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their practice. Applicants may apply for up to €10,000.

The clinic will include information about the purpose and priorities of the award, the application process , budgeting, supporting materials, common mistakes and an opportunity for Q & A. The clinic will also include short presentations from previous artists that have received the Arts Council Arts Participation Bursary Award. Artists will outline their reason for applying, how they used the bursary and what impact it had on the development of their practice. Further detail will be available on the Arts Council and Create websites in the coming weeks.
