Congratulations to everyone who has been awarded a 2010 ArtL!nks bursary! I am so excited that my proposal to create two large felt sculptures was one of the projects chosen, preparing proposals is very stressful and time consuming but when something like this happens it makes it all worthwhile!! I have stolen the following text direct from the ArtL!nks website and if you are interested in discovering more about the various bursary recipients just enter their name in the search box to the left on the ArtL!nks home page.
ARTLINKS is pleased to announce the awarding of €30,000 in bursaries in the five ArtLinks partner Counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow for 2010. Bursaries were judged by an external panel of experts not resident in the five county region and the panel commended the quality of applications received.
ArtLinks Director Cathy Fitzgerald thanks everyone who took the time to submit applications and said that the awarding of more than one bursary in each county means that more artists can be supported in these challenging economic times.
