In 2022, participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their practice, combined with participation in a developmental and networking framework.
Outcomes-focused and not output-driven, the scheme will provide coaching and advisory support and create networking opportunities 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.
The exact content of this artist support framework, which will last for approx. 6 months from May to October 2022, will be informed by the interests of the 31 artists selected.
