Wicklow Arts Office is inviting submissions to the 10th edition of the Strategic Projects Award Scheme, which is set to be worth a total of €80,000 to €100,000.

This scheme is open to artists, national resource organisations, individual curators, and artist collectives. Applications should focus on nurturing practice, enhancing connectivity, generating new perspectives and cultivating new voices within County Wicklow.

There are two funding streams available for the 2023 round of Strategic Projects Award, with Steam A focussing on new initiatives and Steam B on repeat applications for existing award recipients.

Deputy Chief Executive of Wicklow County Council, Mr Michael Nicholson, said: “We welcome imaginative projects which seek to enhance or create new work of and for County Wicklow but recognise that the arts have been particularly affected by the Covid-19 and that there are uncertainties which remain challenging.”
