WICKLOW ARTS OFFICE, announces the closing date for submissions to the 9th Strategic Projects application process. The Arts Office invites applications from artists, national resource organisations, individual curators, and / or artist collectives to propose projects which will nurture practice, enhance connectivity, generate new perspectives and nurture new voices within County Wicklow, supporting a diversity of approach.
There are two streams for Strategic Projects 2022:
A - New applicants and proposals
B - Consolidation / development of strategic projects previously awarded under this scheme
Under Stream A, proposals for new initiatives will be prioritised which add significant value to arts practice, experience and participation in Wicklow and support the Arts Office strategic goals.
Under Stream B, we will consider repeat applications for existing recipients. Applications are welcome from practitioners who wish to consolidate an existing project which is currently underway or who wish to develop an area of practice previously awarded under this Scheme. Previously supported work which qualifies under this scheme includes visual arts engagement, digital arts, outdoor arts, arts and health, early years, arts and disability.
** If applying under Stream B (Consolidation of existing Projects), Section 2.4 of the Application Form must be completed.
