Applicants should be aware of your visual Arts policy:

The aim of Galway Arts Centre’s Visual Arts Policy is to put the arts at the heart of Galway life and people at the heart of the arts. This means enabling artists and arts audiences of all ages to take creative risks and pursue new opportunities in an accessible, engaging and challenging environment.

The Visual arts programme works with professional artists in a range of art forms from the established media of painting, sculpture, photography and printmaking to moving image, new media, live art, design and architecture. This programme is supported by auxiliary events involving talks, symposia, music, story-telling and screenings. The Visual Art Policy and Programme also creates collaborative links with Galway Arts Centre’s Theatre and Literature policies and programmes.

The policy focuses on 3 categories. Each exhibition or project we execute will address one or more of these categories:

·        Engagement with audiences, partnerships and education

·        support for artists

·        exhibitions that place innovation and risk as their main objectives

Galway Arts Centre will accept hard copy applications only. All applications will be discarded after adjudication unless a SAE is provided. Adjudication will be conducted by GAC’s Visual Arts Officer, a board Member and an independent practitioner in early December 2011. All applicants will be notified regarding decisions by email.
