Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award: Collaborative Arts & Architecture


Irish Architecture Foundation are this year partnering with Create to implement The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2015: Collaborative Arts & Architecture. The Bursary aims to support individual professional architects working in the area of engaged and/or collaborative architecture. This is the sixth year that the Arts Council has provided a €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create.

This year for the first time the focus will be collaborative arts and architecture. The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at an architect/ arts practitioner who has a track record of working collaboratively with groups. The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected architect/artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect on practice. More particularly, the Bursary allows the architect / artist to consider key questions associated with creating architecture using collaborative methodologies.

It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider architectural community and collaborative arts sector. IAF will work in partnership with Create in providing information sessions and on the selection process.

Deadline for applications: 16 November at 5pm.
