The purpose of the Agility Award is to enable artists and arts workers (including qualified architects) to do one or more of the following:
• Develop their practice;
• Develop their work;
• Develop their skills.
We will prioritise applications that best show how your practice as an artist or arts practitioner will benefit from taking time to develop your craft or to work on artistic ideas. We encourage applications from early-career stage artists or arts practitioners who may not have previously applied to the Arts Council.
The Arts Council is the Irish government agency for developing the arts. We have a responsibility for architecture and work in partnership with artists, arts organisations, public policy makers and others to build a central place for architecture in Irish life.
