Arts Council awards €500,000 to 20 Next Generation Recipients

The Next Generation bursaries are awarded to promising emerging artists across all disciplines at an early but pivotal stage of their career. 

The award allows artists to buy time to develop their work and to be able to show their potential to advance and strengthen a distinctive and assured creative practice. 

The successful recipients have demonstrated in a compelling way how the award and the financial investment at this particular time will have a transformative effect in bringing them to the next stage of their artistic development.

Artists working across Arts Participation, Dance, Literature, Music, Theatre, Traditional Arts and Visual Arts have been awarded the 20 bursaries to support their practice. Each artist received an award of Ä25,000 and they are invited to participate in a collective week-long residency in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in the spring of 2023.
