ARTS COUNCIL ARTIST IN THE COMMUNITY SCHEME: DEADLINES 2016

2016 Deadlines: (Round 1)   Monday 14 March   (Round 2) Monday 27 JuneArts Logo

Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers grants to enable artists and communities of place/or interest to work together on projects. The Scheme is managed by Create .

The 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. The projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts eg arts and health; arts in prisons; arts and older people; arts and cultural diversity.   The aim of the 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 group, so that both parties are involved in deciding on the nature of the project realisation. Group ownership of the art should be maintained at every stage. The Project Realisation may result in a variety of outcomes.

There are two phases to the scheme.

Phase One:

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 they want to work with during the research and development phase.

Phase Two:

Project Realisation, is open to communities of interest or place (or their representative organisations) with an artist.

2016 Deadlines: (Round 1)   Monday 14 March   (Round 2) Monday 27 June
