2017 ARTS & DISABILITY CONNECT SCHEME

ADC-Website-SliderApplication forms by 5pm on 4th May, 2017.

Arts & Disability Ireland and the Arts Council announce details for the 2017 Arts and Disability Connect scheme, open to artists with disabilities working in eleven artforms.

This scheme is designed to support artists with disabilities to make new and ambitious work. It offers artists the opportunity to: connect with other practitioners or venues; make a change in their practice; ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale; reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring and training.

Funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and managed by Arts & Disability Ireland, Arts and Disability Connect continues to be tailored closely to the needs of artists living in the Republic of Ireland in a way that complements other funding opportunities available.

Arts and Disability Connect has three funding strands:

Arts and Disability Connect New Work  2 awards of up to €8,000 each For more established artists with a strong track record in their professional practice who wish to work with artists and arts partners to develop new work and present in established arts organisations, venues, and festivals etc.

Arts and Disability Connect Mentoring                                                5 awards of up to €2,000 each For artists at all stages of career development including emerging artists who wish to engage in mentoring opportunities.

Arts and Disability Connect Training                                                      3 awards of up to €1,000 each For artists at all stages of career development, including emerging artists, who wish to engage in professional development and other learning opportunities.
