FiraTàrrega – Call for delegates September 2016

Culture Ireland is inviting applications for travel support for those wishing to promote work at FiraTàrrega taking place in Tàrrega, Spain from 8 to 11 September 2016.

Founded in 1981, FiraTàrrega is an international networking and showcase event for the performing arts, with special emphasis on street art and spectacle genres. The main objective of FiraTàrrega is to create and develop international opportunities for artists.

This year Culture Ireland is funding the Irish Street Art, Circus and Spectacle Network to manage an Irish stand at the event.

Culture Ireland is offering a limited number of delegate bursaries aimed at those artists and companies who have a track record of touring internationally, have excellent promotional material available and who would benefit from attending the event to promote their work. It is a condition of support that delegates attend at the stand for particular periods, based on a schedule agreed in advance.

The award (€400 per delegate) is towards the costs of return flights, registration and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence. Only one delegate bursary will be awarded per group.

Applicants should apply online to Culture Ireland.  Click here to apply.

The deadline for submission of completed applications for a delegate bursary is 5pm on Thursday, 28th July 2016.
