Draíocht & Fingal Arts Office
Deadline: 5pm, 18th September 2020
Fingal Arts Office, in collaboration with Draíocht, is delighted to announce an Open Call for HOMEGROUND: Art, People, Place, Identity, five new Research and Development (with mentoring) Awards for artists working in socially engaged and collaborative practice and/or artists working with children and young people.
The call is open to artists from all disciplines across the visual and performing arts.
The artists will demonstrably be either:
(a) currently involved in socially engaged, collaborative project or a project with/for children and young people in Dublin 15 or the wider Fingal county
(b) have the idea, the capacity and the existing relationships to initiate a socially engaged, collaborative project or a project with children and young people in Dublin 15 or the wider Fingal county .
The Award will support the research and development of a pertinent project with attendant mentoring support. The Award does not cover the realisation of a project at this point. In undertaking the researching and development of a project at this point, its realisation may however be envisaged for a gallery, theatre or site-specific space in Dublin 15/Fingal. Subject to resources, Fingal Art Office and/or Draíocht may consider future support for the realisation of one or more of the projects developed through a HOMEGROUND Award.
There are five Research and Development Awards (with mentoring). One award of which will be available specifically for an artist from a minority ethnic or migrant background.
The timeframe of the HOMEGROUND Award is November 2020 – April 2021.
