Leitrim Creative Sector Co-Support Programme 2021

The Co-Support Programme provides grants to Leitrim based professional practitioners in the culture and creativity sector to avail of any service provided by another Leitrim practitioner that will demonstrably contribute to the applicant’s practice, enhance their work, or assist in the promotion of their work.

Such services could include but are not by any means limited to:

-A practitioner with writing skills to help others write biographies, and describing ones practice;
-A filmmaker producing a short video or video profile of a band, theatre company or visual artist;
-A theatre practitioner working with a musician to develop stage skills;
-A theatre company workshopping or producing a playwright’s work;
-Or any other purpose that uses one person’s skills to contribute to another’s practice.

Assessment of applications is based on the following criteria:

-Track record (or potential) of applicant
 -While established practitioners can easily prove a strong track record, emerging practitioners can prove potential by demonstrating achievement relative to the length of career, which can be considered alongside the quality of current work and the proposed ideas.
 -Self published writers, musicians etc. can support their track record by including letters of support from established authors, publishers or literary agencies and by including critical reviews from established authors, publications or venues.
-Track record, skills and experience of the service provider
 -The track record, skills and experience of those the applicant plans to work with.
 -The appropriateness or fit of the service provided to the applicant’s needs.
-Quality and Impact of the proposal
 -The quality and innovation contained in the proposal. The likelihood of the proposal contributing to the applicant being able to produce work of quality that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
 -The extent to which this investment is likely to result in work that will have a strong and meaningful impact reaching audiences in Leitrim, elsewhere nationally and internationally.
-Value for money
 -The cost of the service being proportionate to the assessed need.

The value of an award rises to a maximum of €2,500.  While there is no fixed number of awards, there is generally a larger number of lesser value awards and a small number of maximum value ones. The quantity and value of awards will depend on available resources, number of applicants and the quality of applications. 

Grants will be paid to the applicant upon completion of the projects. All applications should be accompanied by CV’s/Biographies of both the applicant and service provider along with any further information that would support the application.

Completed forms must submitted before midnight Friday 23rd April 2021by email only usingwww.wetransfer.comtoleitrimartsoffice@gmail.com.

The vision of Creative Ireland is that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential. The Creative Ireland Vision for Leitrim is to nurture and foster creative expression in all its diversity; embrace and welcome new ideas; and create the conditions to help turn those ideas into reality and embed creativity into all aspects of the social, economic and cultural life of Leitrim. The new strategy sets out the priorities to achieve that objective in a comprehensive plan and as well as achieving that under the Creative Ireland programme, a central purpose of the strategy is to act as guidance and a key influencer in the development of all cultural policies and corporate planning developed during the tenure of the Creative Ireland programme.
