Purpose of the award
The Music commissions award supports fees paid to artists for commissions in the field of music.
Please note: The window for making applications through the online services website will open on 2 April 2019.
The primary purpose of this award is to facilitate creative partnerships between a range of commissioners and artists. The process must lead to some form of outcome or conclusion. This might be a public performance, a process of engagement with a community of place or interest or some other form of dissemination or presentation of the commissioned work in Ireland or abroad.
In the context of this award the definition of a ‘commission’ is where one person or entity (the commissioner) supports and pays another (an artist or group of artists) to create or deliver an artistic work or project that takes place within a set of parameters agreed to by both partners.
Before you will be able to make an online application the commissioner and the artist/s to be commissioned will have to separately register with the online services site. It may take up to five working days for your registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible. To register now click here.
