Updates from Irish Network Against Racism (INAR)


INAR is pleased to partner with Create Ireland to offer the 2022 AIC Scheme bursary award on Collaborative Arts and Cultural Diversity. It specifically aims to support an individual professional artist working in collaborative socially engaged arts practice who is from a minority ethnic background, has first-hand experience of displacement and/or is shaped by histories of intergenerational migration. For this bursary, candidates may self-identify as Traveller, Roma, refugee, migrant or otherwise through lived experience and/or second generational memories.

The bursary of €10,000 provides the selected artist with time and resources to carry out research and to engage with and reflect on their practice. More particularly, it allows the artist to consider key questions associated with their practice using collaborative methodologies.

Deadline: 15th August

We are also holding an information session on the Bursary with Create Ireland’s Áine Crowley, INAR’s Patricia Munatsi & Artist Gea Gojak, a previous Bursary recipient who will speak about her experience.


Date & Time: 27th July, 2 – 4 pm
