Details of 2022 Markievicz Award bursary scheme announced

The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, has announced that her Department’s Decade of Centenaries Markievicz Award bursary scheme for artists will open for online applications for the 2022 Award.

This will be via the Arts Council’s website on Monday 10 January 2022 and will close at 5.30pm on Thursday 10 February 2022.

The Minister makes Awards under the scheme each year to up to 10 artists (either individual artists working alone or in collaboration with others) – to a value of €25k per individual or group.

The Markievicz Award honours Constance de Markievicz – herself an artist – and provides support for artists from all backgrounds and genres in producing new work that reflects on the role of women in the period covered by the centenary commemorations and beyond.
