How to get funding to work with an artist
Funding for the Artist and Youth Work Residency Scheme 2018/19 has been confirmed! Funded by The Arts Council and The Dept of Children and Youth Affairs, The Artist and Youth Work Residency Scheme aims to provide young people with high quality arts experiences by promoting partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where relevant) arts organisations. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting and/or a youth group in residence in an arts setting.
We will be opening an application call in the coming weeks. Time to start thinking about your project, or to start describing it if you already have a project in mind! To help you, here are 3 resources developed by the programme:
- A beginners guide to developing an artist in residence project in a youth work setting
- A project planning framework to help prompt your thinking and help you shape your project
- A template for developing a contract with an artist
A number of previous contributors have given us good advice on writing a good funding application (including The Arts Council and The Ireland Funds). You can re-read some of that good advice here:
- You got a grant from the Arts Office? How do I get one of those? - Writing the application
- You got a grant from the Arts Office? How do I get one of those? - Choosing the right project.
- The role and priorities that the Arts Council have when it comes to assessing funding applications for children and young people.
