For the purposes of the Realise award, we define new work as work that has not already been produced for presentation in a venue or festival. Work in development, that has been presented as staged readings or work in progress events, will be considered for the Realise award.

Project Arts Centre and Arts & Disability Ireland have a long history of supporting artists and are working together to support artists with disabilities to produce high-quality work for presentation.

For Project Arts Centre, this is an exciting opportunity to extend its supports for artists, and to present ambitious new work that reflects the complexity of contemporary life in Ireland to a diverse audience. This award is supported by the Project 50 Commissioning Fund.

Arts & Disability Ireland have identified the need for a production award through its experience of managing the Arts and Disability Connect funding scheme for artists with disabilities. This production award will fund an artist to produce and present a new work, which is beyond the scope of the current scheme.
