Art: 2016


Alma is a proud recipient of the ART:2016 Next Generation Bursary Award which highlights the work of 18 rising stars of Irish Art.

With this bursary, she is taking time to hone her musical and technical skills, as well as explore her first solo project, spanning the areas of music, performance, sound design and theatre.

ART: 2016 is the Arts Council’s programme as part of Ireland 2016. It is a diverse and distinctive public showcase of Irish art which will be presented across Ireland and abroad throughout the year. Key programme strands include the Open Call National Project Awards, which feature cutting-edge, contemporary art events in dance, visual arts, poetry and music; the Next Generation Bursary Awards which highlight the work of eighteen rising stars of Irish art; and A Nation’s Voice, an open-air, free concert at Collins Barrack on Easter Sunday, featuring new choral and orchestral work by Shaun Davey and Paul Muldoon, and the voices of a 1,100-strong choir. The programme also includes a selection of national touring productions.


ART: 2016 is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht through its Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme and is created with a range of partners; local, national and international.
