The Arts Council will hold an information clinic in association with Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts on Tuesday, 14 June 2016. The clinic will take place in the Training Room, 2nd floor, Filmbase building, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 from 11am – 1pm.

The clinic is taking place in advance of the deadline for the Arts Council Arts Participation Bursary Award, which is on Thursday, 14 July at 5.30pm. The objective of the Arts Participation Bursary Award is to support individual professional artists in any artform, whose practice centres on collaboration with groups of people in any of the following contexts: health, disability, cultural diversity, older people, and communities of place or interest. The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development that is derived from an extended process of engagement with their practice and seeks to provide artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their practice. Applicants may apply for an award of up to €10,000.

The clinic will include information about the purpose and priorities of the award, the application process, common mistakes and an opportunity for Q&A. The clinic will also include short presentations from Michelle Browne and Sarah Fuller who have previously received the Arts Council Arts Participation Bursary Award. Artists will outline their reason for applying, how they used the bursary and what impact it had on the development of their practice. Details also on the Arts Council website.

There is no cost for attendance, however, booking is essential. Please email Jenny Walton at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you wish to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.

Create will also launch a Special Edition of Create News at the event, which will include Bodies and Subjects, a paper originally given by Dave Beech at the Create Networking Day held in IMMA, December 2015.
