FiraTàrrega – Call for Participation in Irish Delegation
Culture Ireland is inviting applications for travel support for those wishing to promote work at FiraTàrrega taking place in Tàrrega, Spain from 5 to 8 September 2019.
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.
Culture Ireland is funding the Irish Street Art, Circus and Spectacle Network to manage Ireland’s participation at the event. Previous Culture Ireland support of an Irish delegation at Firàtarrega has created international opportunities for artists and enhanced networks for the Irish street art and spectacle genres globally.
Culture Ireland is offering a limited number of delegate bursaries aimed at artists and companies from the street art and spectacle artforms 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.
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 organisation.
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 Monday 29th July 2019.
