Arts Council COVID-19 Crisis Response Award
The Arts Council is introducing a special fund to enable Irish-based professional artists to provide access for the public to new and original art during the period of COVID-19 isolation.
The fund is called the Arts Council COVID-19 Crisis Response Award.
Purpose and priority of the award
The purpose of the award is to support the creation and dissemination of new artistic work either online, by broadcast or other virtual means, for the public benefit.
The award is open to any individual who can demonstrate a track record of professional practice as an artist, regardless of whether they are currently registered with the Arts Council, or whether they have ever applied for and/or received Arts Council funding in the past.
