Each year in the month of May, Bealtaine is presented as a nationwide festival celebrating the arts and creativity as we age. The festival is an initiative of Age & Opportunity, the national organisation that promotes active and engaged living as we get older.
Tipperary Arts Office is issuing an open call to artists based in County Tipperary to submit a written proposal for an engagement project or event targeted at older people, culminating in a showcase during the month of May 2024 as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
We would like to hear from Tipperary-based professional artists, or groups of artists, from across all artforms. The funding available to each project will range from €1,000 to €3,500 depending on size, scale and reach of the proposal. Please find attached information sheet below.
Deadline for submissions is 12 noon Monday 11 December 2023
How to apply: Enquiries and submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions should be marked Bealtaine Open Call 2024 and should include:
• Project proposal
• Artist CV(s)
• Three examples of previous relevant practice (images, videos etc.)
