Ignite initiative now taking applications

It aims to commission and tour the work of three artists with disabilities in counties Cork, Galway and Mayo.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 03 Sep 2013

Ignite is a new platform giving professional artists with disabilities the opportunity to get their work supported and out there. Taking applications until September 26, three commissions – one each from Cork, Galway and Mayo – are up for grabs, each up to a maximum value of €60,000. In early '14, the works will be presented locally and the initiative concludes next spring with a more extensive tour for one of the winners.

Ignite's admirable objectives are to support:

– National and international collaboration between artists with disabilities

– The making of new ambitious work by artists with disabilities

– The presentation and marketing of commissioned work at local venues and festivals

– Access to a more diverse range of work for more diverse local audiences

Details on the application process are available on the Arts and Disability Ireland
