NornIronGirl1981 has received a ACES (Artist Career Enhancement Programme) award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. This prestigious award will allow me to explore narrative possibilities for the diary, including digital platforms and story-telling in a number of formats.
I’m very honoured to have received this award, especially in light of the many unjustifiable cuts made in the area of arts in Northern Ireland. I work in an office. I am an ordinary person – without support from the Arts Council, I wouldn’t be able to work on the diary.
