Ignite initiative now taking applications

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

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
