Arts and Disability Connect – Funding Scheme for Artists

Posted: 2 March, 2018

The Arts Council and Arts & Disability Ireland are delighted to announce the 2018 deadline for Arts and Disability Connect, a funding scheme for artists with disabilities.

Specifically targeted at individual artists with disabilities, Arts and Disability Connect includes New Work, Mentoring and Training awards. The scheme offers artists the opportunity to: connect with other practitioners or venues; make a change in their practice; ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale; reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring or training.

Arts and Disability Connect deadline: Thursday 26 April at 5pm

Application forms and guidelines for Arts and Disability Connect are available to download from Monday 5 March.

Arts & Disability Ireland are looking forward to visiting Waterford, Sligo, Ennis, Dublin and Portlaoise to talk to artists with disabilities about this funding scheme.
