Professional dancers based in Cork or elsewhere in Munster are being encouraged to apply for a Firkin Crane bursary award.
The Firkin Crane ReFramed Bursary Award is specifically aimed in response to the current climate created by the Covid-19 pandemic and seeks to support dancers at any stage of their professional career to develop their art practice.
The bursaries, each €1,000, will be awarded to five successful applicants.
The intention of the bursaries is to support artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and critically engage with their art.
The awards will be provided to five independent dance artists based in Cork or elsewhere in Munster that have a demonstrable track record of professional choreography.
Priority will be given to proposals that explain clearly how the bursary would impact on the artist’s practice.
Successful recipients will be expected to engage with Firkin Crane to document their experience.
This may take the form of a video, an online blog, an academic paper or an additional suggestion specific to the artist’s practice which should be outlined upon entry.
The closing date for submissions is Friday, August 7 at 5pm.
Decisions will be by an independent panel and the successful applicants will be notified by Monday, August 17.
