Connecting Artists 22 – Open Call

Connecting Artists are looking for 10 Visual Artists with an intellectual disability for a National Art Exhibition at The Royal College of Surgeons.

With thanks to Bank of Ireland’s Begin Together Fund, and Business to Arts, Connections Arts Centre is offering a safe and supported environment for 10 Artists to take the first steps in developing their Art practice from a hobby to a career.

The successful applicants will also have the opportunity to take part in an exhibition held at the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland in Summer 2022.

They are now accepting applications from anyone over the age of 18 living on the island of Ireland with an intellectual disability. Ideal candidates will already have a creative practice.

For more information, to register for their information evening (2nd February), or to download an application form please click here:

Applications will close at midnight on February 16th, 2022.

Connections Arts Centre is an award-winning not-for-profit, working to connect the Irish Disability Community through the Arts.

Connections Arts Centre was founded in April 2021 by Miriam Spollen and is a recipient of the Dublin Social Enterprise Award 2021. From her own personal experience and her time working in the Disability Sector, Miriam understands the positive and life-changing impact that the Arts can have on people living with disabilities, many of whom struggle with exclusion and loneliness in an inaccessible society.
