Longford County Council Arts Services have announced their inaugural Arts Bursary and Awards Scheme.

The focus of the scheme will be: individual professional artists operating in the Longford County Council administrative area, and aspiring artists from the area, studying creative arts at a third level college. Students hoping to attend art-form specific creative summer courses may also apply.

Grants will be awarded to artists to support continuing professional development.

Artists Bursaries will be in the region of €500, though the figure may be varied by adjudicators. Education Bursaries will be paid to students from the area from September 2014.

All entries must be submitted by email to fkennedy@longfordcoco.ie.
