Create, in partnership with Dublin Fringe Festival, are delighted to announce that the 2019 Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award takes the focus of Collaborative Arts and Theatre
The objective of the Artist in the Community (AIC) Scheme Bursary Award, offered once a year, is to support individual professional artists whose practice centres on collaboration with individuals or groups (non-arts professionals). The AIC Bursary Award 2019: Collaborative Arts and Theatre aims to support individual professional artists working in collaborative socially engaged forms of theatre practice.
The purpose of the award is to support and nurture professional arts practice; it is specifically aimed at an artist with a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest. The bursary of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect and engage with and reflect on their practice. More particularly, it allows the artist to consider key questions associated collaborative methodologies in theatre practice.
The closing date for applications to this bursary is the 11th November 2019, at 5pm. Read more about the bursary award on our website.
They are also delighted to offer an information session for artists in relation to the 2019 AIC Bursary Award, this year themed on Collaborative Arts and Theatre. In this information session Áine Crowley, Programme Manager, Arts and Engagement, will outline the Bursary, answering any questions you might have about making an application. She will be joined by Ruth McGowan, Director of Dublin Fringe Festival. The focus of discussion will frame the collaborative arts and theatre context, the application process and how a Bursary could help facilitate and support experiment, research and professional development. Artist Cathy Coughlan, previous Bursary recipient (Collaborative Arts and Dance), will speak to her experience and the role the Bursary played in the development of her practice.
This event is offered free of charge, but booking is essential.
