Wicklow Arts Office invites submissions to the 11th edition of the Strategic Projects Award Scheme. Open to artists, national resource organisations, individual curators, and / or artist collectives, applications should focus on nurturing practice, enhancing connectivity, generating new perspectives and cultivating new voices within County Wicklow.
There are two funding streams available for the 2024 round of Strategic Projects Award:
A - New applicants and proposals
Under Stream A, support for new initiatives will be prioritised for those projects which add significant value to existing arts practice, experience and participation in Wicklow, and which support Wicklow County Council Art's Office's Strategic Goals.
B - Consolidation / development of strategic projects previously awarded under this scheme
Under Stream B, consideration will be given to repeat applications for existing Award recipients, from practitioners who wish to consolidate a project currently underway or to develop an area of practice previously awarded under the scheme. Previously supported work which qualifies under this scheme includes visual arts engagement, digital arts, arts in the public realm, arts and health, early years, and arts and disability.
** If applying under Stream B (Consolidation of existing Projects), Section 2.4 of the Application Form must be completed.
