St. Patrick’s Festival x TikTok €100,000 Creative Fund Opens for Applications
The St. Patrick’s Festival x TikTok Creative Fund is a €100,000 fund which is available to community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises who use artistic and cultural interventions as a tool to connect, enhance and inspire their communities.
10 x €10,000 awards are available to develop and deliver a creative, artistic or cultural project in your community. The 10 successful groups will be supported throughout the process by the St. Patrick’s Festival team and groups may also use their fund to work with professional local artists, performers, creatives and crews to help bring their project to life.
The application process is simple and straightforward and requires you to fill in an online application form telling a little about your community and the creative project that you would like to undertake. You are also asked to make a short video on your phone (or other recording equipment if preferred) introducing your community and showing the creative work that you do. Closing date for applications is 6pm on Sunday, 24 October.
All successful groups will be announced in early November and work can start on your project over the following months. Projects that are ready by March 2022 will be showcased to Ireland and the world on St. Patrick’s Festival’s platforms and on TikTok.
In addition, all awardees will be invited to participate in a specially developed community focused TikTok masterclass. Here community workers can develop and enhance their storytelling skills through the TikTok platform and learn how best to harness the potential of social storytelling to communicate with their audiences, build awareness, showcase their work, and inspire participation.
There are some terms and conditions, so please read these carefully.
Closing date for receipt of applications is 6pm on Sunday, 24 October, 2021
Dream big and let those creative juices flow!
