Applications are now being invited for the thirteenth annual Ted & Mary O’Regan Arts Bursary.

The Bursary was inaugurated in 2005 to honour the memory of one of Waterford’s best loved and respected couples. The purpose of the Award is to assist an individual or individuals, either from or with a strong connection to Waterford City or County, to pursue and develop their chosen arts discipline.

Applicants should note that the criteria for the Bursary are open and flexible and that people of all ages may apply. Whilst the Bursary has, in the past facilitated recipients to attend a third level arts course, this is not a pre-requisite. The Award will aim to fill the financial gap which prohibits an arts worker or arts student of any age or any arts discipline achieving their artistic goal.

The Bursary is funded by a combination of local arts organisations, statutory agencies and by individual contributions from friends, associates and family of the late Ted and Mary O’Regan.

Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford Youth Arts, Spraoi, Theatre Royal and Waterford Dramatic Society are among the local arts groups who make the award possible and the statutory bodies who contribute are Waterford City & County Council and Waterford Youth Committee. Together, these organizations have enabled the awards committee to offer local artists more than €85,000 in support of their activities since the foundation of the Bursary.

Further information and application forms for the Award can be had by contacting Garter Lane Arts Centre and Greyfriars Gallery Waterford.

In Dungarvan -The Old Market House Arts Centre or http://www.waterfordyoutharts.com. The closing date for the receipt of applications is Friday 26th May.
