Create the national development agency for collaborative arts is delighted to announce that we will partner with Live Art Development Agency (UK) on their acclaimed DIY10 programme.

DIY10 is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual training and professional development projects for other artists. DIY understands that the development of a Live Art practice is as much about the exploration of ideas and experiences as training in skills and techniques, and past DIY projects have proved to be invaluable experiences for project leaders, participants and organisers alike.

There will be two phases to this exciting partnership opportunity. In the initial phase this year and as a prelude to our full involvement in this exciting programme, Create are delighted to offer Ireland based artists the opportunity to apply for a travel grant to attend two of this year’s DIY 10 sessions. In the second phase in 2014 Create will become full partners and will devise workshops as part of the DIY programme.

For this Bursary opportunity, eligible artists based in Ireland will be able to apply for a €250 bursary to go towards travel and accommodation to enable their participation in one of the following sessions:

Workshop One: Barby Asante and Delaine Le Bas
