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:

Last year’s application form and guidelines are available on for reference.
