Markievicz Award 2023
The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, has today announced the 10 new recipients of the Markievicz Award for 2023.

Minister Martin congratulates the 10 latest artists to receive the award. Up to €25,000 awarded to each artist under the Decade of Centenaries Programme 2012-2023

“The 10 artists announced today as Markievicz Award recipients join the 32 artists already in receipt of the Award since it began in 2019,” said Minster Martin. “The Award honours Constance de Markievicz – herself an artist – and provides valuable support to artists from all backgrounds and genres to develop their craft and produce new work that reflects on the role of women in the period covered by the centenary commemorations and beyond.”

“This is the fifth year of the Award and I am grateful to the Arts Council for both administering the award and for providing additional support to facilitate access for artists to the Award.”

The Markievicz Award is designed to support artists to develop their craft and ultimately produce great art that recognises and commemorates the role of women in the historical period 1912-1923 covered by the Decade of Centenaries Programme, and beyond.

Awards under the scheme have been made each year since 2019. Since 2021 up to 10 artists (either individual artists working alone or in collaboration with others) have been supported up to a value of €25,000 per individual or group. The Minister’s department is partnering with the Arts Council on the administration of the scheme under the Decade of Centenaries Programme 2012-2023.

Minister Martin added: “Each of the artists I met in Dublin recognises the importance of acknowledging, understanding and highlighting the vital role played by women individually and collectively in our history.  I look forward to following the progress of this latest group of Markievicz Award artists and to encountering the work they produce as a tangible legacy of the Decade of Centenaries Programme.”

“Creative expression is a vital outlet and resource for our society, in articulating contentious history and informing our present thinking and future aspirations.  We value this resource highly in Ireland and are fortunate to have over 100 years of artistic output that reflects us, challenges us and inspires us as an independent nation with our own distinct identity on the world stage.”

The Award will benefit each artist in different ways. 

Some artists will have tangible outputs, producing new work and enhancing the public profile of themselves and their work. Other artists are already well known and the Award will allow them to develop a new strand to their craft, collaborate with other practitioners, or explore new skills to complement their abilities and take their work in new directions. For some, at a very early point in their artistry, the Award will support them as they invest themselves more freely and fully in the exploration and development of their skills and craft.
