South Tipperary Artist Bursary Award

The Art Service of South Tipperary County Council is pleased to announce that applications are now being invited from individual artists, resident in or originally from South Tipperary for the 2010 Artist Bursary Award Scheme. The aim of this scheme is to support artist’s living in and from South Tipperary in developing their own arts practice.

There are two awards:
-Emerging Artist Award, E1,500 (1 award available)
-Artist Award. E3,000 ( 2 awards available)

Applications will be considered from artists working in all art forms:

-For the creative research and development of new work.
-Initiatives that can demonstrate the development of an artist’s existing practice
-To allow time for an artist to concentrate on their practice, releasing them from other commitments.

This is not an education bursary. The Bursary Award is open to individual artists at all stages of their career, (one award will be allocated to an emerging artist), working in any art-form, art practice discipline or genre. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they are practising professional
artists.

Deadline: Friday 30th April 2010.

aw man, I was reading this and getting very excited and completely missed the fact that you have to be in or from tipp. That sucks. I love free money.

On another note, I was wondering if you could mention the anthology Three Times Daily on your blog? In passing or something? I feel bad about asking but I'm going to go ahead and post this anyway. Verification word: tagle.

Where do you live Jessica? Where are you from? If they're not the same place, you can often apply for 2 difference grants.

Oh REALLY. That sounds like an evil mastermind plan if ever I heard one. I'm from Dublin but live in Galway.
