Do you have a good idea for a youth arts project in your youth group but require the funding to work with an artist?
Applications are now invited for the Artist and Youth Work Residency Scheme programme for projects commencing in September 2018. The scheme is managed by the National Youth Council of Ireland on behalf of the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs by whom it is jointly funded.
The scheme is designed to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where relevant) arts organisations. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting and/or a youth group in residence in an arts setting.
There are two strands to the artist and youth work residency scheme. Strand 1 – development; and Strand 2 – full residency.
