The award is specifically focussed on helping artists to improve their capacity to develop or present high-quality arts experiences with or for children and young people. It is open to individual artists and practitioners working in a creative capacity in any artform, including arts facilitators, curators or programmers.
Further guidelines will be available on the Arts Council website.
The Young People, Children and Education Bursary Award specifically supports artists to engage in professional development that will improve their capacity to develop or present high-quality arts experiences with or for children and young people. The bursary aims to support artists at all stages of their careers.

- Enable a professional artist with significant experience in their artform but with limited experience in developing work with or for young people to develop their knowledge and capacity in this area;

- Enable an emerging, mid-career or established artist to explore new ideas, skills or ways of working that will improve their capacity to create high-quality work with or for young people.
