Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers grants to enable artists and communities of place/or interest to work together on contemporary collaborative arts project through the Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create.
The projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts including cultural diversity; arts and health; arts in prisons; arts and older people. 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.
This event, introduced by Limerick City Arts Officer Sheila Deegan, will provide information about how to apply to the Artist in the Community Scheme with examples of successful applications from artist Vukasin Nedeljkovic and Michele Horrigan from the Askeaton community.
