Arts + Health Bursaries 2022 | Emerging Artist Bursary

Posted 10.05.22

The national arts and health website is offering an Emerging Artist Bursary bursary. The emerging artist reflective bursary is available for an early-career artist to reflect on their arts and health practice. Applications are now open with a closing date of Friday 10 June 2022.

Professional artists with an emerging arts and health practice are invited to apply for the artist bursary 2022 to reflect on their practice.

The artist bursary was first introduced in 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and curtailment of arts programming in health settings. Artists continue to show great resolve and imagination in developing arts experiences for healthcare communities at a time when in-person engagement is often still not possible.

Early-career artists working in healthcare contexts are not always afforded the same opportunities to reflect on and interrogate their practice as their more experienced peers. This new bursary is purposely designed to provide early-career artists with the headspace for reflective enquiry as they develop and shape their arts and health practice.

The bursary is open to individual early-career artists working in any artform within the field of arts and health practice in the Republic of Ireland.

The bursary awardee will share learning arising from the bursary with the wider arts and health community via How this learning is presented is at the discretion of the selected artist.

One bursary award of €2000 will be offered to the successful applicant.
