Invitation to Apply to Participate in Culture Ireland’s Delegation at the Edinburgh Festivals, 2018

The Edinburgh Festivals offer an important platform for Irish artists to gain international recognition for their work and generate further touring opportunities.

In 2018, Culture Ireland will host a networking event to facilitate direct engagement with international promoters in Edinburgh for the festivals.

Culture Ireland invites applications from those who wish to be part of the Irish delegation to attend this networking event to promote their work to international arts industry presenters and promoters in Edinburgh on 6th August 2018 (mid-afternoon). A travel grant of €400 will be awarded to successful applicants.

Applications will be assessed on the basis of:

The suitability of the project/work for promotion to international delegates in Edinburgh.

The track record of the artist/company in presenting work abroad.

The list of international contacts interested in the work of the artist/company.

The capacity of the artist/company to avail of opportunities to tour internationally in 2019/2020.

Applicants must be available to be in Edinburgh on the afternoon of Monday 6th August 2018 to attend the Culture Ireland international networking event.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm Friday 29th June 2018.

This year, Culture Ireland is supporting eight productions to present their work at Edinburgh and is part of Culture Ireland GB18, a year-long initiative promoting Irish artists in Britain and celebrating the many artists and industry professionals who have based their careers in both territories.

PLEASE NOTE: In the case of a company, only one application for either an artist or company manager will be eligible for consideration.  Artists and/or companies already in receipt of Culture Ireland support to showcase in Edinburgh this year are not eligible to apply.
