Create is delighted to offer two Artist in the Community Scheme bursaries in 2021.
The first, themed on Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity, is offered in partnership with the Immigrant Council of Ireland, and is designed to support individual professional artists whose practice centres on collaboration with individuals or groups (non-arts professionals). The second bursary and its theme will be announced in September.
The AIC Bursary Award 2021: Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity specifically aims to support an individual professional artist working in collaborative socially engaged arts practice who is from a minority ethnic background, has first-hand experience of displacement and/or is shaped by histories of intergenerational migration. For this bursary, candidates may self-identify as Traveller, Roma, refugee, migrant or otherwise through lived experience and/or second generational memories.
The closing date for applications is 5pm, Monday the 16th of August.
Full details of the award, as well as the application procedure, are available here.
