The application for the 2015 Ted and Mary O’Regan Arts Bursary is now open – deadline Thursday 30th April at 5pm.

The bursary grants up to €5K each year to artists with an association to Waterford. It is aimed at enabling artists to reach a goal which otherwise wouldn’t be possible without some financial assistance.

Among the organisations who have contributed to the bursary are Waterford Youth Committee, Waterford City and County Council, Waterford City Enterprise Board, Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford Spraoi, Theatre Royal, Waterford Dramatic Society and Waterford Youth Arts.

Their combined support, together with individual contributions, has enabled the Bursary Committee to dispense a total of €75,000 to local artists since 2005.
