Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers Artist in the Community Scheme grants to enable artists and communities of place/or interest to work together on projects. The scheme is managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts.
Applications are now open for the Artist in the Community Scheme (Round One) 2024.
This includes the following awards:
- Research and Development Award (without mentoring)
- Research and Development Award (with Mentoring)
- Recent Graduate Research and Development Award (with Mentoring)
- Project Realisation Award
Applications are open until the 25th March, and further information can be found on our website.
Create is pleased to announce an upcoming online information session on applying to the Artist in the Community (AIC) Scheme, with Aine Crowley, Programme Manager Arts and Engagement and previous AIC Scheme recipient Brigid Mulligan, held on the 6th March.
The information session is about answering any questions you might have about making an application to the Scheme. It’s also about sharing experience of developing and delivering a collaborative project through the Scheme. If you are an artist or a community organisation interested in the Artist in the Community Scheme but don’t know where to start, come talk to us. If you are an artist interested in developing a collaborative project with a community organisation or in a community situation this event is for you. If you are an artist who has applied before and would like to access further detail on the application process, please join us.
