Mayo County Council are offering two special bursary awards to artists born or living in Mayo, to enable them to spend two weeks at The Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig, County Monaghan. Each bursary covers all board and lodging expenses for a two-week period, plus the use of a studio if necessary.
There are a variety of workspaces available including studios, a music room for composers and musicians, and a large rehearsal and performance space.The bursaries are open to practitioners in all artforms born or domiciled within County Mayo. There is no age limit.
Applicants should show significant achievement in their chosen field. This would normally mean that writers should already have published in book form, painters and sculptors should have had one-person shows in reputable galleries and that composers and musicians should have had their work commissioned, recorded or performed, or whatever might be appropriate to the particular artform. Otherwise the applicant must demonstrate a high degree of promise attested by references or other forms of support from established figures in the arts.
