The Arts Council and Arts & Disability Ireland announce the 2018 deadline for Arts and Disability Connect

The Arts Council and Arts & Disability Ireland are delighted to announce the 2018 deadline for Arts and Disability Connect, a funding scheme for artists with disabilities.

Specifically targeted at individual artists with disabilities, Arts and Disability Connect includes New Work, Mentoring and Training awards. The scheme offers artists the opportunity to: connect with other practitioners or venues; make a change in their practice; ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale; reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring or training.

Arts and Disability Connect deadline: Thursday 26 April at 5pm

Application forms and guidelines for Arts and Disability Connect are available to download from www.adiarts.ie/connect.

Arts & Disability Ireland are looking forward to visiting Waterford, Sligo, Ennis, Dublin and Portlaoise to talk to artists with disabilities about this funding scheme.

Information clinics:

Thursday 22 March, 2pm at Glór, Ennis

At these information clinics we will talk through the guidelines, application process and answer any questions artists have about the scheme. Please RSVP in advance to Amie Lawless:
amie@adiarts.ie. If you have any access requirements please let us know.

Irish Sign Language, speech to text and a loop system will be available at the Project Arts Centre on Tuesday 27 March. All venues listed are wheelchair accessible.
