Applications for the Arts Council’s Agility Award are now open. This funding scheme is for individual professional artists, freelance artists and arts practitioners at any stage of their careers and is available across all art forms and art practice areas supported by the Arts Council.

The Agility Award 2024 seeks to support those who have not been previously funded as individuals by the Arts Council, as well as continuing to support artists who have previously been funded.

You can apply for the Agility Award if you want to:

  • Develop your practice
  • Develop your work
  • Develop your skills

The amount requested can range from €1,500 – €5,000. However, artists or arts practitioners with disabilities can include additional access costs in their application.
