dlr Creative Ireland bursaries offer the opportunity for local communities and arts organisations to lead on creative projects in their own area. They will support new and exciting opportunities for people to get involved in a great variety of creative activities.

Bursaries will be awarded from €2,000 up to a maximum of €7,000.
The awards can support any creative activity but must respond specifically to Creative Ireland pillar number 2 which is: Enabling Creativity in Every Community
The lead applicant must be a local community group or an arts organisation. The project or activity must take place in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown.
Bursaries are available to support activity taking place between May to December 2019.
