Age & Opportunity Creative Exchanges bursary in association with Music Network

Application deadline: Monday 10th September 2018


Music Network is offering a bursary for a professional musician working primarily in classical, jazz/improvised or traditional music to attend this award-winning, accredited course.


Creative Exchanges is for anyone leading creative activities with older people in care settings, or seeking to develop their creative practice in this area. Participants develop the skills needed to plan and facilitate arts activities for older people in either residential or day care settings. The course brings together practitioners from different arts disciplines and others with related expertise to discuss different approaches and to lead participants in arts activity.


The Music Network bursary covers the course fee of €650 for the selected musician.


Further details on the course are at www.ageandopportunity.ie/what-we-do/education-training/creative-exchanges


N.B. Musicians interested in this bursary must apply through www.musicnetwork.ie (not via Age & Opportunity’s website) and include their current CV (3 x A4 sides maximum) with their application.
