Monaghan County Council values and wishes to support the work of the Artist and extend the range of opportunities for artists to develop their practice. We recognise that we have a responsibility to provide financial and other assistance to artists, so that they can be supported in the making and presentation of their work, and in their professional development.

The artist is not just the creator of art, they also encourage discourse and navigate us to think outside the box of commonly held opinions of society. They allow us to explore through their work aspects of our own lives and of the world around us. Artists are central to development of the arts in Monaghan. (Framework agreement with Arts Council)

PLATFORM 31 ARTIST SUPPORT SCHEME

PLATFORM 31 ARTIST SUPPORT SCHEME TO RUN FOR SECOND YEAR AFTER SUCCESSFUL PILOT
Nationwide scheme by the 31 Local Authority Arts Offices in collaboration with the Arts Council opens for applications on March 3 2022

PLATFORM 31 ARTIST SUPPORT SCHEME

Following on from its successful pilot in 2020-21, the Association of Local Authority Arts Officers (ALAAO) is once more collaborating with the Arts Council to present PLATFORM 31 – a national opportunity for artists to be supported to investigate how they might develop their practice or make work in a different way.

Designed to support and enable career development for 31 mid-career artists – one artist will be selected from each of the 31 local authorities around Ireland – there are two elements of support for participating artists in this pilot scheme: financial and developmental.
Participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their practice, combined with participation in a developmental programme.

Informed by last year’s pilot, the PLATFORM 31 developmental programme will provide coaching, advisory support and networking opportunities for participating artists, introducing them to a pool of critical thinkers to share their work and encouraging a national conversation about creating work in local contexts.

Designed to support mid-career artists, PLATFORM 31 is open to artists of any artform, medium and practice – as well as multi-disciplinary artists, living in any of the 31 Local Authority regions in Ireland.

Applications open from March 3rd to 30th 2022.
