The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2013: Arts and Cultural Diversity aims to support individual professional artists in any artform working in the field of arts and cultural diversity. This is the fourth 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, the national development agency.

The sessions will be led by Katherine Atkinson, Professional Development, Create with additional input from Dr Daniel Jewesbury, artist and researcher. Lead researcher on Cultural Diversity & the Arts: Towards a Policy (Arts Council 2009)

The Bursary Information sessions will cover a number of key areas:

What is a Bursary?  How can the learning from the Bursary be shared? Practical information about applying; Definitions – cultural diversity and the arts; Context of cultural diversity; artistic and ethical implications

Last year’s recipient of the Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award Arts and Disability 2012 was theatre maker, Sophie Motley. She availed of the Award to explore new formats for accessible performance in tandem with exploring her own performance interests which include performance in unusual spaces; her overall aim was to explore further the circumstances which allow for ‘the creation of integrated performance practice methods which do not alienate a Disabled community and allow the non-disabled community to learn about and experience the performance in the same way as the Disabled community.
