About this event

Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers Artist in the Community Scheme grants to enable artists and communities of place/or interest to work together on projects. The scheme is managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts.

The scheme is open to artists from any of the following artform disciplines: architecture, circus, street art and spectacle, dance, film, literature (Irish and English language), music, opera, theatre, visual arts and traditional arts. The projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts eg arts and health; arts in prisons; arts and older people; arts and cultural diversity. The aim of the scheme is to encourage meaningful collaboration between communities of place and/or interest and artists.

Information Session

Create is pleased to announce an online information session and Collaborative Practice clinic in partnership with Cairde Sligo Arts Festival, supported by Sligo County Council Arts Service. This session will be led by Áine Crowley, Programme Manager, Arts and Engagement, with Jijo Sebastian, film-maker and previous AIC Scheme recipient, and is available to artists throughout Ireland.

The information session is about answering any questions you might have about making an application to the Scheme. It’s also about sharing experience of developing and delivering a collaborative project through the Scheme. If you are an artist or a community organisation interested in the Artist in the Community Scheme but don’t know where to start, come talk to us. If you are an artist interested in developing a collaborative project with a community organisation or in a community situation this event is for you. If you are an artist who has applied before and would like to access further detail on the application process, please join us.

Collaborative Clinic

In addition to the information session, Create, in partnership with Cairde Sligo Arts Festival, supported by Sligo County Council Arts Service, is also offering online Collaborative Clinic sessions on the 8th July. The Collaborative Clinic offers artists/applicants one to one project advice sessions with members of the Create team. These include sessions specifically for first-time applicants to the Research and Development award, and those who have been unsuccessful in the past, as well as sessions for applicants to the Project Realisation award – looking at Budgeting, Communications and Dissemination, Production and Digital Platforms and Evaluation. These 30 minute clinics are reserved for Sligo-based artists who have attended the information session. Booking details will be made available closer to the time.
