Create is pleased to partner with the Irish Network Against Racism (INAR) to offer the 2022 AIC Scheme bursary award on Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity.
This bursary is designed to support individual professional artists whose practice centres on collaboration with individuals or groups (non-arts professionals).
The AIC Bursary Award 2022: Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity specifically aims to support an individual professional artist working in collaborative socially engaged arts practice who is from a minority ethnic background, has first-hand experience of displacement and/or is shaped by histories of intergenerational migration. For this bursary, candidates may self-identify as Traveller, Roma, refugee, migrant or otherwise through lived experience and/or second generational memories.
The purpose of the award is to support and nurture professional arts practice; it is 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 engage with and reflect on their practice. More particularly, it allows the artist to consider key questions associated with their practice using collaborative methodologies.
The closing date for applications is 5pm, Monday the 15th of August.
Full details of the award, as well as the application procedure, are available on their website here.
