New Awards Scheme for Artists with Disabilities

The Arts Council is working with Arts and Disability Ireland to devise a new Awards Scheme for Artists with Disabilities in the Republic of Ireland.  Supported by the Arts Council it is anticipated that the scheme will have a fund of €25,000 to distribute as part of its initial pilot phase in 2014.

Specifically targeted at individual artists with disabilities the scheme will launch later this spring and expects to make its first annual round of awards by August 2014.  It is intended that the scheme will bring a fresh perspective to supporting artists with disabilities while complementing existing funding and learning opportunities.
