Platform 31

The nationwide scheme by the 31 Local Authority Arts Offices in collaboration with the  Arts Council opens for applications on March 3 2022.

Following on from its successful pilot in 2020-21, the Association of Local Authority  Arts Officers (ALAAO) is once more collaborating with the Arts Council to present  PLATFORM 31 – a national opportunity for artists to be supported to investigate how  they might develop their practice or make work in a different way.

Designed to support and enable career development for 31 mid-career artists – one  artist will be selected from each of the 31 local authorities around Ireland – there are  two elements of support for participating artists in this pilot scheme: financial and  developmental.

Participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their  practice, combined with participation in a developmental programme.

Informed by last year’s pilot, the PLATFORM 31 developmental programme will  provide coaching, advisory support and networking opportunities for participating  artists, introducing them to a pool of critical thinkers to share their work and  encouraging a national conversation about creating work in local contexts.

Designed to support mid-career artists, PLATFORM 31 is open to artists of any  artform, medium and practice – as well as multi-disciplinary artists, living in any of  the 31 Local Authority regions in Ireland.

Applications open from March 3rd to 30th 2022.
