CREATIVE AWARD 2019

Award amount €20,000

ABOUT THE AWARD

The award is to create new collaborative work between Irish professional artist (s) or production companies with a Meath-based community group(s), society or informal groups of all kinds.  This ambitious award of €20,000 is made to encourage new creative ideas and new ways of working with artists within County Meath.  This Creative Award is made possible through funding from Creative Ireland and Meath County Council.

WE ARE ENCOURAGING AMBITION 
The work must be an extraordinary project, or form of collaborative creative engagement such as, but not limited to, theatre, artwork, event, dance, literature, spectacle, residency or commission. It must be a result of meaningful collaboration and interactions between professional artist(s)/production companies and the group itself.  The proposed collaboration can be located anywhere in the county.
We are looking to support collaborations that are of the highest quality in artistic and collaborative experiences for all participants/artists involved.  A local Meath group can be any group of people living in the county who get together regularly.  Professional artists can be resident in Ireland or abroad.  The work must take place in 2019.  

The artist or the community can apply for the award, but must be able to demonstrate that there is mutual agreement on the proposed work between the artist(s) and local group, a commitment to undertake that new work, and clarity on everyone’s agreed role.  

An independent panel will select the successful proposal. There will be one award only. Solstice Arts Centre will administer the award.

WHAT IS NOT ELIGIBLE:
• Festivals
• Artistic collaborative work that is already in progress
• Proposals that do not feature a professional artist

APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY 8 FEB 2019 & INCLUDE:
• A clear proposal 
• Full budget with details of other income and/or Benefit in Kind
• Agreed rates of pay to artists
• Letter of Agreement between groups and artists
