Gaeltacht Artists’ Bursary Scheme is now open

Applications for the Gaeltacht Artists’ Bursary Scheme is now open.

This funding scheme is aimed at those working as professional artists where it gives the artist the opportunity to devote time to the development of their artistic practice.

We welcome applications in any artistic medium, from artists living in the Gaeltacht (eg writers, musicians, dancers, visual artists, actors etc.). This scheme is not a source of annual income or support for arts projects. Priority will be given to new applicants, but interesting applications from those already funded under the scheme may also be considered.

Criteria for funding.

  1. The Gaeltacht: This scheme is aimed at artists based in the Gaeltacht.
  2. The Irish Language: The artist will demonstrate in their application how they work through the Irish language.
  3. Professionalism: Demonstrates that the artist has created / produced high quality work or the potential to do so, and has appropriate experience / qualifications.

Only one application from the candidate will be accepted at any application round.
