Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme
Bursary Award 2014 : Collaborative Dance

The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2014: Collaborative Dance aims to support individual professional dance artists working in the area of collaborative dance or with groups of non-dancers . This is the fifth year that the Arts Council has provided a €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create. This year for the first time the focus will be artform specific as opposed to focusing on a social or community context.

Purpose and priorities of the award

The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at a dance artist/s who have a track record of worked collaboratively with groups to produce dance works/performances.

The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected artist with the time and resources to carry out research, and to reflect on and re-consider the questions associated with creating dance work with non-dancers or those who are not professionally trained.

It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider dance community and collaborative arts sector.

Create will work in partnership with Dance Ireland in providing information sessions and on the selection process.
