THE Waterford News & Star is delighted to announce a bursary of up to €1,000 for a person or persons involved in the arts/theatre. The bursary forms part of the Waterford News & Star Green Room Awards 2023, which will take place in the Theatre Royal on Sunday, February 26, 2023, celebrating the diversity, scale and quality of Waterford’s theatre and arts scene – both professional and amateur.

The awards, which are kindly supported by Arts Department at Waterford City and County Council, are extensive, encompassing musicals, drama, comedy, choral, panto and much more.

 

‘The bursary will be given to someone who might not otherwise have the funds to achieve his or her potential’

 

They are as much about community as they are about the arts, reflecting how deeply embedded amateur theatre and performance is in Waterford. The Waterford News & Star Green Room Awards will incorporate the once-off Bursary to a maximum amount of €1,000.

The objective of the Waterford News & Star Green Room Awards Bursary is to support individuals in their endeavours in Arts and Theatre. The bursary is available to people at any stage of their career to develop their practice.

The bursary emphasises the value and benefit to a person’s development derived from an extended process of engagement with their practice. The bursary seeks to provide the successful candidate with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their practice. The bursary will be given to someone who might not otherwise have the funds to achieve his or her potential.
