dlr Arts Office has launched two commissions aimed at supporting an artist/arts organisation who work or intend to work with people in either the field of Arts and Health or Arts and Disability in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County.

With the onset of Covid-19, artists and arts organisations working in the Arts and Health and Arts and Disability sectors have been seeking ways to engage with participants and services to continue their practice.

dlr Arts Office proposes to offer these commissions to allow an artist or an arts organisation the time, space and reflection to continue to find and develop new ways of forging their practice with some of the county’s most vulnerable residents.

dlr Arts Office is open to all art forms and the artist/arts organisation may wish to work with participants from any age profile – from babies to older people – in the County in the area of Arts and Health or Arts and Disability. The artist/arts organisation may wish to work with a newly formed group of participants or an existing group. These could be linked to a service in either the health or disability sectors in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County.

The fee is €5,000 per commission to include all expenses (VAT inclusive). The commissions must be completed by January 2022.

These opportunities are funded by the Arts Council and supported by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.

Closing Date for receipt of applications
