ARTIST IN THE COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITY

2017 Deadlines: (Round 1) Monday 27 March & (Round 2) Monday 26 June

Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers grants to enable artists and communities of place and/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, e.g., arts and health; arts and cultural diversity; arts and older people; as well as with any communities of interest (  such as anglers, environmentalists, hikers or chess players)   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.

For further information on the Scheme visit Create website:www.create-ireland.ie   or email Katherine Atkinson, Professional Development,   support@create-ireland.ie
