Platform 31 Bursary

The Association of Local Authority Arts Offices, in collaboration with the Arts Council, present PLATFORM 31: a national opportunity for artists to develop their practice and test new ideas of collaboration, research, audience development, place-making and sharing their work.

Designed to support and offer career development for 31 mid-career artists (one artist in each of the 31 local authorities around Ireland), there are two elements of support for participating artists in the scheme: financial and developmental. Participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their practice, combined with participation in an advisory and developmental framework and a peer network.

The aim of the scheme is to allow artists time to reflect on how they might test new ideas, research new approaches and make work in a different way, while being connected with and supported by peer practitioners, advisors and mentors.

Deadline: 30 November, 5pm
