Applicants for the Professional Creative Collaboration Production grant and the Youth Social Inclusion Arts programme grant are invited to reapply with new or reworked proposals. This follows the workshops held on May 19th in Greyfriars, Waterford.
In applying for the grants please ensure that you follow the Guidelines.
Please note: This is a revision of the two grants that were published in December 2015 and thus is only open to those who originally applied.
Professional Creative Collaboration Production
This grant is for a multidiscipline collaboration between a number of organisations leading to a unique special event or programme that could otherwise not be realised. It is for new creative products that are born from collaboration as opposed to a product that would generally be “business as usual” for a single organisation’s (e.g. a play or a film). While the grant will be awarded for a unique proposal, due cognisance will be given to programmes that lead to self-sustainability.
A good example of a multidiscipline collaboration between a number of organisations leading to a unique special event/programme was “Waterford Sings” (a collaberation between massed choirs, composers, poets and a major event).
Waterford City & County Council understands that this grant is only one part of the package needed to support such a venture.

Youth Social Inclusion Arts Programme
This programme is largely aimed at disadvantaged youth and early school leavers. The City & County Council is interested in approaches made with other partners on-board. The programme could follow a narrative style, possibly along the lines of a social history project. The programme must be fully documented and culminate in a film, a performance or a documented exploration and exhibition. As this is part of a coordinated youth programme, the application must also detail a section that deals with, or explains, the depth and context of the arts in everyday life. Preference will be given to a programme that covers as much of the county as possible. The Council understands that this grant is only one part of a package needed to support such a venture.
