Arts Council announces details of 2018 Visual Arts Bursary Award, Round 2 Strand 1 (Visual Artists) Strand 2 (Curators)

The application window for the 2018 Visual Arts Bursary Award, Round 2 will open on 12 June 2018. The deadline for the scheme is 5.30pm on Thursday, 12 July, 2018.

Please note: The Visual Arts Bursary Award will include two strands:

Strand 1 (Visual Artists)

Strand 2 (Curators)

 

The inclusion of Visual Arts Bursary Strand 2: Curators, follows a decision to suspend the Visual Arts Curator Residency Scheme in order to review the award as part of a wider strategy towards developing visual arts capacity at local level.

The Visual Arts Bursary Award Strand 2: The award seeks to provide curators with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their practice. The award emphasises the value and benefit to a curator’s development derived from an extended process of engagement with their curatorial practice. The award also seeks to develop capacity for commissioning, producing and touring of the visual arts in Ireland.

Please note the budget for Visual Arts Bursary Award Strand 2 (Curators), will be a separate budget allocation to that of Visual Arts Bursary Award Strand 1 (Visual Artists).

 

The maximum amount available to be applied for under the Visual Arts Bursary Award will continue to be €15,000.

Guidelines for the scheme will be published on the available funding section on our website in the coming weeks.
