Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival is delighted to announce the National Arts in Nursing Homes Day Award, in partnership with Nursing Homes Ireland, is returning and is now open for 2023.

We invite applications from care settings who wish to facilitate their residents’ artistic and creative expression by organising interactive and engaging arts workshops, sessions and events. The project will culminate in a festival event to be presented as part of our second ever National Arts in Nursing Homes Day that will take place Friday 26th May during the Bealtaine Festival 2023.

One award of €1,000 and two awards of €500 will be made to three successful applicants to coincide with the annual National Arts in Nursing Homes Day.

Please read the guidelines here before submitting your application form.

Deadline: 5pm, Friday February 24th 2023.

The third National Arts in Nursing Homes Day will take place Friday 26th May, as part of the annual Bealtaine Festival.

Once again, we will be encouraging nursing homes to mark the role of arts in our nursing homes by hosting an event to participate in and commemorate the Festival. All nursing homes are eligible to take part, whether they are a recipient of a National Arts in Nursing Homes Day Award or not.
