Strategic Arts Projects 2022

Funding round was open in 2021

In June 2021, Wicklow Arts Office invited submissions to the 9th Strategic Projects application process. Open to artists, national resource organisations, individual curators, and / or artist collectives, applications focused on nurturing practice, enhancing connectivity, generating new perspectives and cultivating new voices within County Wicklow, and supporting a diversity of approach.

The two funding 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 which add significant value to arts practice, experience and participation in Wicklow and support the Arts Office strategic goals will be prioritised.

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.

The closing date was Friday 30th July 2022 at 12:00 noon.
