Grey Area Project No.28 - SUBSET_1

2019 winner, SUBSET

The Community Art Award is a €5,000 investment in a community-based arts initiative, which is presented at the Business to Arts Awards.

You are invited to nominate a project or organisation with a cultural emphasis – whether local to home, something you or a family member or friend are involved with or enjoy participating in, or perhaps a project which a client is passionate about.


Entry criteria for the Community Art Award:

Groups/organisations do not need to be registered charities, but must be not for profit. Applicant organisations can be both arts and non-arts organisations, but there must be a specific link to an arts-based activity. For example, community groups, who:

  • Share particular cultural interests, such as singing, writing, playing music or amateur dramatics
  • Live or work in a specific area, such as a town or locality that organise arts based activities. This could also be through a school, hospital, church, etc.
  • Provide opportunities for disadvantaged people to participate in arts and cultural activities building community identity and pride

Entries must be able to demonstrate the impact of their arts project on their community. They should be able to demonstrate how funding will make a measurable difference to the project scale/scope. Projects should be based in the Republic, but can be all-Ireland in their scope.

The general Business to Arts Awards Judging Panel will select a winner for the Community Art Award.
