EXPRESSION OF INTEREST in Taking part in Access, Equality & Opportunities for Artists DISCUSSIONS with the Arts Council

Please read this first

In our Equality, Human Rights & Diversity policy Action Plan we commit to undertaking a substantive consultative process with artists from diverse backgrounds to gain a more informed perspective on the issues they face in advancing their careers as artists. We want to hear from you about the obstacles you have encountered in having a career as an artist in Ireland today.

We had originally planned to hold a series of meetings at different locations around the country but with the ongoing Covid 19 situation that is no longer possible. We are however putting plans in place to hold a series of web-based consultations and we would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in taking part. We are particularly interested in hearing from artists and practitioners we have not engaged with before.

Alongside the consultation meetings, we will also run an online survey, to ensure anyone not in a position to participate, can provide their thoughts and ideas.  If you would like to participate in either (or both) the consultation meeting and / or the survey, please complete your details below.  Given the focus of the consultation process, we have asked you to tell us a little about yourself  including a question about which of the 10 grounds of discrimination you most identify with. These questions are not mandatory but will help us to ensure participation includes as many different perspectives as possible. All information provided will be treated with the strictest confidence and will not be shared with any third party.

We look forward to hearing from you!
