Opportunity: Connecting Artists 2024 Open Call

Posted: 8 January, 2024

Connecting Artists is a programme designed for adult visual artists with intellectual disabilities who wish to come together with their peers to develop their creative practice.

How does Connecting Artists work?
10 adult artists with intellectual disabilities will be selected nationwide for a 10-week online program designed to elevate their art and prepare them for exhibiting and even selling their work. The 10 artists will showcase their work at a joint exhibition in the prestigious College of Surgeons in July 2024. Each artist will also have the opportunity to work one to one with a mentor throughout the programme.

You can find more information and the application form at connectionsartscentre.ie

If you have any questions about the application or programme or are a support worker or a family member of an adult artist with intellectual disability and want to find out more, please email CA24@connectionsartscentre.ie
