DEADLINE THIS COMING MONDAY! PLATFORM 31 – €8k ARTS GRANT FOR MID CAREER ARTISTS

PLATFORM 31, a State-wide artist development scheme to allow artists develop their practice, and test new ideas, has been launched by The Association of Local Authority Arts Offices, in collaboration with the Arts Council.

Designed to support and offer career development for 31 mid-career artists – one artist for each of the local authorities in the Republic of Ireland – the scheme also seeks to allow artists explore ideas of collaboration, research, audience development, place-making, and sharing of their work. The award is open to artists of any discipline and practice, based in the Republic.

Participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their practice, combined with participation in an advisory and developmental framework. It will also establish a peer networking framework for participating artists, introducing them to a pool of critical thinkers to share their work and learnings, and encouraging a national conversation about creating work in local contexts.

Applications are open until November 30. For more information email localartsireland@gmail.com or see https://platform31.localartsireland.ie.
