Artist Bursary Scheme


Donegal County Council recently sought applications from individual professional artists of all disciplines for assistance towards arts projects which were on-going or proposed, through its Artists Bursary Scheme 2020. The scheme was designed to support individual artists at any stage of their career, to sustain and further their practice.


The objective of the Scheme was to facilitate artists in the development or the completion of specific bodies or programmes of work. It supported artists to sustain and develop their practice through the research, design, creation and presentation of events, performances, exhibitions and other artistic projects. In particular, and with regard the current restrictive Covid 19 environment, the scheme assisted artists to explore and devise new ways of working and of reaching the public with their work. It was designed to assist artists to stabilize their existing activity while looking to the future.


Forty five artists – including musicians, composers, visual artists, film-makers, dramatists and writers have each been awarded bursaries of €1,000 each under the 2020 scheme.  


Details of the 2021 Bursaries Scheme will be published on this site when they have been finalised.
