Dublin Fringe: Break New Ground Bursary Opportunity
Posted: 17 October, 2023
Applications for Break New Ground Bursary are now open.
FRINGE LAB is delighted to be back with the Break New Ground Bursary, which will support an artist who has not led a project at Dublin Fringe Festival before, towards developing an ambitious new idea for live performance.
This bursary will provide tailored support towards the creation of a project for a future Dublin Fringe Festival debut with a €4750 bursary, a €750 mentorship allocation and in-kind supports to the value of €2000.
The bursary aims to support the development of bold work, radical art-forms and ambitious ideas. Artists whose backgrounds are in music, spoken word, club, live art, comedy, installation, cabaret, community building, and circus are especially welcome to apply.
Fringe Fest wants to support the development of bold work, radical art-forms and ambitious ideas. They are searching for artists who want to make work that blends disciplines; who want to expand their practice to be more experimental or more theatrical depending on their current practice. Fringe Lab champions interdisciplinarity and support projects and approaches that otherwise might fall through the cracks. They encourage new artists, and artists working professionally in one genre that want to try something new to apply. They’re especially interested in supporting artists whose backgrounds are in music, spoken word, club, live art, comedy, installation, cabaret, community building, and circus.
This bursary is to support the development of an idea for a new, full length live performance work. The bursary recipients will be invited to present their work in a future edition of Dublin Fringe Festival, from 2024 onwards.
Deadline for applications is 10am on Tuesday 7 November 2023.
