Donegal County Council Artists‘ Bursary Scheme 2021

Thursday November 4, 2021

THE Donegal County Council Artists‘ Bursary Scheme 2021 welcomes applications from individual professional artists of all disciplines for assistance towards arts projects which are on-going or proposed.

The scheme, which is funded by the council and Arts Council Ireland, is designed to support individual artists at any stage of their career to sustain and further their practice. Bursaries of up to €1500 each may be offered under the Scheme.

The objective of the Scheme is to facilitate artists in the development or the completion of specific bodies or programmes of work.

It will support artists to sustain and develop their practice through the research, design, creation and presentation of events, performances, exhibitions and other artistic projects.

In particular, and with regard the current, unpredictable Covid 19 environment, the scheme aims to support artists who may be thinking about new ways of working and of reaching the public with their work. It is designed to assist artists to stabilize their existing activity while looking to the future.
