The Arts Council will offer Project awards in the following:

 

  • Arts Participation
  • Circus
  • Dance
  • Film
  • Music
  • Street Arts & Spectacle
  • Theatre
  • Traditional Arts

 

The Arts Council's Project awards support specific project activities under each of the above artform/arts practice areas. The award guidelines for each award can be downloaded from the available funding section of the Arts Council's website from mid December.

 

Who can apply:

The award is open to individuals and organisations.

 

Who cannot apply:

Organisations in receipt of grant funding for 2018 cannot apply. This means organisations in receipt of Strategic Funding, Venues Funding or Partnership Funding.

 

NOTE: you cannot make an application for both Project Award Funding and Arts Grant Funding in 2018.

 

The deadline for all the above awards is 5.30pm on Thursday 15 February 2018.  Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council's online services website and all supporting material must be submitted online. Applicants who have not previously used the online services site must register in advance of making an application.  It may take up to five working days for your registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.

 

We now provide updates and assistance on the use of online services through our new Facebook page. Feel free to post or send us a message via the page if you need online services support when making a Project Award application: http://www.facebook.com/artscouncilireland
