DROGHEDA ARTS FESTIVAL 2018 | Artist Commission
Commission Award: Maximum €5000

Call for proposals from professional artists, arts collectives, and arts companies based in the North East and working in any genre to support the presentation of new work at the Drogheda Arts Festival in May 2018.

This commission is open to professional artists at any stage in their career looking to present new work in a festival setting. The aim of the commission is to assist artists living in the North East region to present new work and develop their professional practice. This new work can take any form – including visual arts interventions (please note both Highlanes Gallery and Droichead Arts Centre are already programmed, so all visual arts proposals should be outside of these two spaces), performance of new music compositions, scripted theatre, off-site dance, and everything in between – we are not prescriptive about in the manner in which you work, only that the work is new, ambitious, and professional.
