The Arts Council Announce Details of the Young Ensembles Scheme
The primary purpose of the Young Ensembles Scheme is to support groups of young people between the ages of ten and twenty-four to create or critically engage with ambitious and original work together in any artform (e.g. circus, street art, spectacle, dance, digital media, film, music, theatre, literature, visual arts, architecture, or any combination of the above). Groups/ensembles must be made up of three or more members.
Application deadline is 17:30 on Thursday, 29 February 2024.
Learn more here.
Applications open on Tuesday, 30 January.
The Young Ensembles Scheme has two strands. The maximum award under Strand 1 is €10,000 and the maximum under Strand 2 is from €10,000 to no more than €25,000. You may only apply to one strand, and you should choose the strand that is most suitable for your ensemble and for your proposal.
You must be registered with the online services website to make an application. If you are not already registered, The Arts Council recommend you register for online services as far in advance of the deadline as possible, as it may take five days for your online services registration to be processed.
