About the Trinity Creative Challenge
Sponsored by the Provost of the University, this funding award aims to foster the development of ambitious and innovative interdisciplinary projects and works, ideally involving a collaboration with, or within, Trinity College Dublin. The award is open to projects and ideas with a focus on interdisciplinary creative arts practices across a wide range of forms including performance, visual art, music, film, design, new media, animation, gaming and creative technologies.
