Create and partner Dance Ireland are pleased to announce an online information session for the 2022 AIC Scheme Bursary on Collaborative Arts and Dance.
On Tuesday 20th 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 Louise Costelloe, Programme Producer, Dance Ireland.
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. Dance artist Tobi Balogun, previous Bursary recipient (Collaborative Arts and Human Rights, 2020), will speak to his experience and the role the Bursary played in the development of his practice.
The bursary closes for applications on the 17th October.
