Brief Description

Laois and Offaly County Councils, with the support of Creative Ireland, wish to commission up to two artists to explore and present aspects of the pollinators of Ireland through art. We are predominantly interested in the artist’s vision for how the story and value of Ireland’s pollinators can be innovatively realised, interpreted, communicated and made public. We are open to these commissions being plays, publications, film, temporary installations, music or performance. Each artist should build a series of up to four public workshops into their project, as communicating the value both of pollinators and the process of making the art will be a key part of the project. The content and outlook of these workshops should form part of the artist’s proposal. All requests for clarification or further information in respect of this commission should be submitted by email to [email protected] and [email protected]
