The Young People, Children and Education (YPCE) Team wishes to advise that the window of application is now open for the Artist and youth work residency scheme 2016/17. This scheme is managed by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) on behalf of the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs
The artist and youth work residency scheme is designed to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where relevant) arts organisations. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting and/or a youth group in residence in an arts setting.
There are two strands to the artist and youth work residency scheme. Strand 1 – development; and Strand 2 – full residency.
Strand 1 – development (€1500, with potential to apply for a further €3500)
This strand is intended to support an organisation or artist to work with proposed partners to develop a collaborative residency programme. Successful applicants for Strand 1 will have the opportunity to submit a follow-up proposal within three months of receiving their award for funding to follow through on the proposed programme.
Strand 2- full residency (€5000)
This strand is intended to support residency programmes that have been jointly developed by the partners involved (i.e. the artist, youth group and any other key partner organisation) and that fully meet the criteria for the award.
The maximum award available is €5,000.
The deadline for receipt of applications is Monday 5 September 2016
