Arts Council Next Generation artists award Funding Application Deadline – 21 May 2020

Next Generations artists award
The purpose of the Next Generation artists award is to support a group of promising artists across all disciplines at an early but pivotal stage in their career. Recipients will receive €20,000 and will also take part in a collective week-long residential programme in early 2021. Joint applications and interdisciplinary applications are welcomed. The selection panel will comprise, a non-voting Council Chair, two Council members, and a number of external panellists.

This award is designed to support emerging artists to:

  • buy time to develop their work and practice;
  • support unique development needs to advance their own practice (this might be through engagement with a mentor, research, non-formal study and/or non-vocational training, collaborative partnerships, etc.). Applicants must detail the development need that would most advance his or her career at this time.

Deadline: Thursday, 21 May 2020
