Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme
Bursary Award: Collaborative Arts & Architecture
The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2015 aims to support individual professional architects / artists working in the area of engaged and/or collaborative architecture. The Arts Council has provided this €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create.
The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at an architect/ arts practitioner who has a track record of working collaboratively. The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected architect/artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect on practice. More particularly, the Bursary allows the architect / artist to consider key questions associated with creating architecture using collaborative methodologies.
It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider architectural community and collaborative arts sector.
Create in partnership with Irish Architecture Foundation hosted two information and discussion events in THE LAB, Dublin and the National Sculpture Factory, Cork for architects and artists on October 28 and 29. Katherine Atkinson Professional Development Create spoke about the award, the application process and how a Bursary can help facilitate and support experiment, research and professional development. There was a presentation by artist/architect Blaithin Quinn (biography).
Deadline for applications: 16 November at 5pm.
