The Artist in Youth Work Residency Scheme is a grant scheme for youth arts projects funded by The Arts Council and managed by the Arts Programme of The National Youth Council of Ireland. It is currently closed to applications. The Scheme is offered to youth organisations involving professional artists and young people as a means of extending and enhancing opportunities for young people to experience and participate in the arts.
The aim of the scheme is to encourage artistic collaboration between professional artists and young people. Young people will have the opportunity to work with and learn from practitioners of excellence in their field. Equally, artists will have the opportunity to enrich their own professional practice through the contextual experience of working with young people.
