Vol 7 Issue 10
30 June 2010

Welcome to the June edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

This month we have a host of exciting announcements to make on our funding schemes.   The first round of bursary recipients for this year are made available, a total of 111 artists from across the country received grants. The Arts Council is delighted once again to support the abundance of creative talent that exists in this country from individual artists of all disciplines, including writers, visual artists, theatre-makers and many more.  We also announce the recipients of the Young Ensemble Scheme, an award designed to support groups of young people between the ages of 12 and 23 to create ambitious and original work together in any artform.  The Council is proud to assist such talented groups, from dance ensembles to film-makers in fully realising their creative potential as a collective.   In addition, the Arts Council are delighted to reveal the recipients of the Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme and the Theatre Project Award.  The Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme will allow 44 individual artists and organisations to take their shows on the road to all corners of Ireland; these include Druid Theatre's The Silver Tassie and Fidget Feet's The Snow Queen.  The Theatre Project Award will allow the development, presentation and production of 24 theatre projects, including Selina Cartmell's production of Medea and Blood in the Alley's Jumping the Sharks, a new play by Michael Lovett. To finish our funding announcements we include the recipients from the latest rounds of the Deis scheme and we announce the artist who has been awarded the Location One Fellowship for 2010.   

Also in June, Arts Audiences publishes findings from the Build your Audience Scheme. These should be of interest to arts organisations looking to explore better ways to connect with and engage audiences. Butler Gallery provides a great insight into how to measure the audience of a gallery, and the Ark in partnership with IMMA reports on engaging with school audiences. 

We also include information on a new policy on visual artists’ workspaces.  The policy aims to address the infrastructure of visual artists’ workspaces in Ireland in a way that is sensitive to the dynamics and diversity of the sector.

A reminder on the deadline for the next round of Bursary Awards is also included in this month’s edition.   

Finally, the newsletter rounds off with our regular article on news from the arts community and international opportunities from the Cultural Contact Point.
