Minister Foley invites applications from schools for new arts in education initiative – BLAST 2022

 

 

The Department of Education is pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 Arts-in-Education BLAST Residency Programme, which will enable up to 425 new Arts-in-Education Residencies in schools each year (Press Release).  The deadline for receipt of applications is 30th September 2022.

The aim of this scheme is to give pupils in schools all over the country the opportunity to work with a professional artist on unique projects.  

This initiative supports children and young people for the future, where skills like the ability to connect and collaborate with others, engage in creative and critical thinking and practice inclusivity at every level will be paramount to peace, stability, sustainable economic growth and equality. 

The artist’s fee is €1,000 per residency which is funded by the Department of Education.
