Vol 7 Issue 9
31 May 2010

Welcome to the May edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

Siobhán Parkinson became Ireland's first laureate for children’s literature this month (Laureate na nÓg).  President Mary McAleese presented her with the Laureate na nÓg medal at a special event held at the Arts Council. The Arts Council is proud to initiate Ireland’s first laureate for children’s literature, which will be managed on our behalf by Children’s Books Ireland. In this month's newsletter we provide you with more information on the role, and include Siobhán Parkinson's first interview as the Laureate. 

The Arts Council announces details of the successful recipients under round two of the Small Festivals Scheme for 2010 and we have information on the upcoming deadline for the Bursary Award, round 2

We also include a call for applications for a pilot scheme from Arts Audiences which will select three projects to receive structured support and monitoring from industry professionals; the scheme asks for organisations who may have similar audiences to partner-up and devise straightforward and low-cost methods to expand their audience.  Arts Audiences also makes available three reports from the recipients of the New Media Mentoring Scheme and publishes the Guide to Marketing Your Production on Tour, a report resulting from the Build Your Audience scheme.

The Ireland Chair of Poetry's bursary recipient for 2010 is selected. We are delighted to announce that the Arts Council's recently launched online services system has been voted IT project of the year (public sector) in the ICT Excellence Awards. There is also a note reminding subscribers of the public art website (www.publicart.ie), which provides information for artists working in the public sphere.

We finish off the newsletter with our regular articles on news from the arts community and international opportunities from the Cultural Contact Point.
