The purpose of the Professional Development Award is to support practicing artists and arts practitioners to upskill through access to a professional development or training opportunity.
Applicants can propose a specific once-off training or developmental opportunity. This can be accessed digitally or in person, in-line with COVID-19 guidelines. Examples might include:
- Creative development supports, such as participation in workshops, specialist courses, master classes, research projects, residencies, coaching/mentoring, attendance at conferences/seminars
- Career development supports, such as strategic and/or financial planning, promotional, presentation or digital skills, proposal writing
The proposal may be to work with an individual or organisation based in Ireland or abroad.
