Incubation Award for Emerging Ensembles, Collectives, and Individual Artists and Creatives
This Creative Ireland South Dublin initiative seeks to support emerging ensembles/collectives and individual young artists and creatives in any discipline or working across cultural and creative disciplines to develop their practices and to promote their collective presence as creative voices in the county.
The amount of the award is €5,000. It is available to young people under age 25 who are living in the South Dublin County Council’s administrative area.
In 2019, the selection panel awarded this bursary to Freshly Ground Theatre to develop and present Love Letters to Tallaght, a number of performance, light, and auditory installations.
The work is informed by letters written by the public and placed in specially built letter boxes at three locations in Tallaght.
