5. Decisions: Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme – 2011 (Strand 2)

The Arts Council is delighted to announce decisions for the 2011 round of its scheme designed to support additional touring and dissemination of work across a broad range of arts disciplines. The principal purpose of the scheme is to ensure that audiences throughout the country have access to more high quality arts experiences.

Under the present scheme, 40 touring projects have been offered a total of over €1million in funding for activities taking place throughout 2011. It is expected that this will result in 300 additional performances, exhibitions and events taking place in arts centres, galleries, theatres and other spaces in a broad range of locations right across the country.

Strand 2 is the principal scheme for funding additional touring activity in 2011. The timing of this round is intended to facilitate producers and presenters in planning touring activities taking place during 2011. It is intended that two further strands will be introduced in due course: strand 1 for touring which requires longer-term planning and strand 3 for short-term planning which requires a rapid response.
