We are seeking applications from professional artists* with an interest and background in the arts and older people in a care context, to participate in a new Age & Opportunity professional development Arts initiative, the Artists Care Exchange (ACE). Professional artists from a wide range of art forms are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to visual arts, dance, theatre, creative writing, music, circus and multidisciplinary arts.
ACE will offer six – eight professional artists who work in care settings with older people an opportunity to exchange information, advice, and experiences in a group situation, whilst also learning from a range of experts in the social, medical, and arts fields.
*While there is no one definition of a professional artist, we would suggest that it relates to someone who is either making a living from or attempting to make a living from their work. Membership of a professional representative body such as: Visual Artists Ireland, Film Director’s Ireland, Association of Irish Composers etc. could also be used to demonstrate status as a professional artist.
Please see links below for full information.
Closing date Friday, September 23rd at 5pm.
