Through Our Eyes: Artist Martin Beanz Warde, Timmy Casey and family. Supported by the Traveller wellbeing through Creativity initiative 2022.

Proposals are invited from Traveller organisations with experience of working with health/wellbeing and/or creative arts, and/or creative practitioners with experience of, or relevant to, working with Travellers, for the Traveller Wellbeing through Creativity 2023 initiative.

Traveller Wellbeing through Creativity has been developed in partnership with the Creative Ireland Programme, the Department of Health (Healthy Ireland Programme), the HSE, the National Social Inclusion Office and the Arts Council.

Grant funding between €30,000 – €50,000 per project will be provided in 2023 under this initiative, up to a total of €200,000 including a new Shared Island grant for one project of up to €50,000.
