Vol 6 Issue 9
29 May 2009

Welcome to the May edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

The Arts Council's grant-in-aid has been reduced twice in recent months.  In this edition of the newsletter we include an important notice to all funded organisations on how the Arts Council plans to deal with its reduced budget allocation from Government.

Also this month, the Arts Council made available a new publication entitled The Framework for the Welfare of Animals Presented in the Arts. The document sets forth policy, creates obligations, and provides information and guidance to entities featuring animals in their arts activities, who seek funding from the Arts Council. We advise funded organisations on the recent decision by the Government to reduce all professional fees by 8% in respect of services rendered on or after 1 March 2009, which are paid for by exchequer funded organisations.

We also have details of the 8 new members of Aosdána.  The newly elected nominees will bring the Aosdána membership to 240.

Elsewhere in the newsletter, we announce the recipient of the Kevin Kiernan Award; this award aims to direct funding towards architectural excellence and innovation through supporting the artistic formation and career development of an architect. We publish the results of the Young Ensembles Scheme, and also invite you to view a reflection and evaluation video from the recipients of this Award in 2008. We announce the recipients of round 1 of the Bursary Awards for 2009, and also include the results of the latest rounds of Deis. We remind you of the upcoming deadlines for the Artist in the Community Scheme and the Performance and Touring Award.

Finally, closing the newsletter are our regular articles from the Cultural Contact Point and news from the arts community.
