The SEVN Artist Bursary 2022/23 is a €13,500 financial bursary to support art practice development over a year 2022/2023. The expected timeline runs between July 2022 to June 2023.
The South East Venue Network (SEVN) was formed in 2019 and includes venues based in the South East. The network continues to provide an informal support network for strengthening arts centre/venue operations and programme development that aims to further support artists and programme delivery in South East Ireland.
SEVN includes Courthouse, Wicklow, Garter Lane, Waterford, Mermaid Arts Centre, Wicklow, National Opera House, Wexford, Theatre Royal, Waterford, Visual, Carlow, Watergate, Kilkenny and Wexford Arts Centre, Wexford.
The purpose of the SEVN award is to support a professional arts practitioner, artist, curator, technician or producer based in South East Ireland at any stage of their career to develop their art practice. It will provide an arts practitioner with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and critically engage with their art. The bursary should support the artist over one year on developing their art practice with just a requirement of a report and participation in an artist talk and presentation on development of their work at any one of the SEVN venues which will also be recorded for online sharing by the participating SEVN’s. Each participating arts centre/venue contributes significant support to the award apart from NOH (Non Arts Council funded contributing BIK – space/mentor marketing/PR). The SEVN Artist Bursary Award is open to artists of all disciplines who have presented/exhibited work in a professional context within the last 5 years.
