Wicklow County Council Arts Office established the Arts Groups/ Organisations Award Scheme as one of a number of funding streams designed to support artists, arts participation and artform development. These schemes form part of a wider set of actions initiated or supported by Wicklow County Council directed at supporting quality practice and public participation in the arts in the county.

Response to COVID – 19

As we are now in the midst of a Covid 19 Pandemic, these are exceptional times for artists and communities alike. We recognise the challenge posed to both arts groups and to local organisations active in community engagement at a time of physical distancing coinciding with urgent demands to focus on immediate service provision. We are therefore opening up a new fund replacing the Arts Groups and Organisations Award. Our Artists and Communities Collaboration Fund will create opportunities for artists and communities of place and / or interest to grow new ideas and resource themselves to generate something new, to test out some innovative thinking and ways of working together to collaboratively create a new project or activity. The aim of this programme is to empower communities to creatively move forward in 2021.

SCHEME PURPOSE

Participation and access are core strategic objectives of the Wicklow Arts Office. This collaboration fund will enable artists and communities to engage in arts activity, to explore their creativity, to interact and exchange ideas with others and to embark on new learning journeys. Professional artists and communities with whom they will collaborate in 2021 are invited to apply and Wicklow County Council welcomes applications from all artforms including film, music, visual arts, theatre, dance, literature, architecture, animation, performance, circus, traditional arts, film, music and drama. Artists prior to making this application, are required to have already approached a community group and have their full agreement to collaborate in the project.

The objective of this scheme is to support artist and community collaboration in any discipline or genre of the arts to develop or realise a high-quality project or programme which will support both the artist’s and the community’s creative development. It is the intention of this award to fund in total or in part either (i) a research and development phase of a planned initiative or (ii) the production/ realisation of a new arts project or programme in 2021.

The maximum award available under this scheme is €5,000.
