Applications are now open for our National Arts in Nursing Homes Day Award 2024!
Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival, in partnership with Nursing Homes Ireland, wish to recognise three outstanding arts projects through the National Arts in Nursing Homes Day Award 2024.
We invite applications from care settings who wish to facilitate their residents’ artistic and creative expression by organising interactive and engaging arts workshops, sessions and events led by professional artists. These care settings will aim to create an exciting and suitable Bealtaine project that celebrates their residents arts and creative talents, culminating in a festival event (which may be online, blended or in-person)*. This will be presented as part of National Arts in Nursing Homes Day that will take place Friday 17th May during the Bealtaine Festival 2024. It presents an opportunity to bring together residents, families, care staff and artists to promote the arts in your care setting, to support residents in expressing their creative talents and to take joy from a creative arts initiative.
One award of €1,000 and two awards of €500 will be made to the three successful applicants.
Deadline: 5pm, Monday February 26th 2024.
