Managed by the Arts & Disability Forum on behalf of the two Arts Councils of this island, the Arts & Disability Awards Ireland scheme supports individual deaf or disabled artists to produce exciting new contemporary arts work in all media. Through this funding, artists with disabilities have developed unique artwork of extremely high artistic quality, some progressing to a level where international recognition is won. Advice is available from the initial idea through to the submission of the application.
The scheme’s purpose is to identify, encourage and nurture individual talent amongst disabled practitioners. Individuals can apply for up to £5,000 (or the Euro equivalent).
You may think you don’t know anyone who could apply but this scheme is for all types of disabled people and all artforms. It isn’t always possible to tell who is disabled and some people feel so stigmatised that they try to hide their condition. So please help your contacts towards an opportunity by spreading the word about the Arts & Disability Awards Ireland scheme.
The 2013 ADAI grant forms and guidelines will be available from 17 April 2013 and can be downloaded by clicking on THIS LINK or we can email them to you. For access reasons we prefer you to submit the form as an electronic document if possible but we can supply standard print hard copies if required. Alternatively formatted information can also be made available, for example large print or Braille, and if you are a British Sign Language or Irish Sign language user, we can give you a dvd introduction to the scheme in BSL or ISL.
