The Arts Council invites tenders from interested parties to project manage Wintering Out, a national programme to support the reintroduction and reimagining of live arts events as we move through the current pandemic.
“If we winter this one out, we can summer anywhere”. —Seamus Heaney
The Adapt, Survive, Renew report of the Expert Advisory Group which was adopted in June 2020 sets out a recommendation that the Arts Council facilitate a new initiative in live arts events before the end of 2020.
Wintering Out is intended to be a sector-led programme, drawing from organisations who had work at an advanced stage of preparation before the onset of Covid-19. The project manager will work with organisations and individuals to come forward with proposals to devise and present events in a nationwide week-long celebration of the live arts events in Spring 2021 (subject to public health guidelines).
