Purpose and priorities of the award

The second Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2020: Collaborative Arts and Human Rights aims to support individual professional artists working in collaborative socially engaged arts practice.

The purpose of the award is to support and nurture professional arts practice; it is specifically aimed at an artist with a track record of working collaboratively with communities of place or interest in the context of human rights. The bursary of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to reflect and engage with and reflect on their practice. More particularly, it allows the artist to consider key questions associated with human rights using collaborative methodologies.

It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the bursary with the wider Human Rights and collaborative arts sector. Create will work in partnership with the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, providing an information session and on the selection process.
