Create and partner the Irish Local Development Network are pleased to announce an online information session for the AIC Scheme Bursary on Collaborative Arts and Community Development.
On Tuesday 7th September, Create will host an information event for artists in relation to this bursary. In this information session Áine Crowley, Programme Manager, Arts and Engagement, will outline the Bursary, answering any questions you might have about making an application. She will be joined by Siobhán Power who is representing the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN).
The focus of discussion will frame the context of this Bursary, the application process and how a Bursary could help facilitate and support experiment, research and professional development. Artist Marielle MacLeman, previous Bursary recipient (Collaborative Arts in Health Contexts, 2018), will speak to her experience and the role the Bursary played in the development of her practice.
The bursary closes for applications on the 18th October.
Marielle MacLeman is a visual artist exploring ideas of place through two-dimensional and sculptural processes, site-specific installation and participative and collaborative methodologies. She has worked extensively in the area of Arts and Health including public art and the project management and delivery of participatory arts programmes in palliative care and acute hospital contexts. Over the last 17 years she has made work for or with communities in hospice, haemodialysis, care for the elderly, paediatric, maternity bereavement, neonatal, mental health and mortuary contexts, working with organisations such as Art in Hospital Glasgow, Waterford Healing Arts Trust, Saolta Arts and Galway 2020.
