ArtLinks partners in Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford City & County Council will soon be announcing the details of the collaboration award 2022. In advance of this opportunity, Kilkenny and Wexford Arts Offices will hold two online information clinics for the upcoming collaboration award. ArtLinks members from Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford are advised to attend one of these sessions if you are considering making an application or are interested in finding out more about the Collaboration Award.

The ArtLinks Collaboration Award is a relatively new award and seeks to encourage more collaboration between artists across the ArtLinks counties and support artists seeking to expand their practice and networks regionally. The award must involve collaboration between artists from two or more ArtLinks counties in the development of new work, to be showcased in two or more ArtLinks counties.  Find out more by attending one of the information sessions below.
