Vol 8 Issue 2
29 October 2010

Welcome to the October edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

The Arts Council announces the application deadlines for our three main grant programmes - Regularly Funded Organisations, Annual Programming Grants and Annual Funding.   We also include information on the Writers in Libraries Scheme, which will provide funding for imaginative literary events in libraries across the country.

In this month's newsletter we make available findings from the Art-Youth-Culture: FYI event.   This event brought together 60 young people between the ages of 15 and 25 to discuss their participation in cultural life and the arts with their peers and key policy makers.  The publication includes a summary of key messages which emerged over the course of the event, and concludes with an Arts Council response, outlining potential actions in the area of young people, children and education. 

As part of its ongoing work to publish resource material for arts organisations, Arts Audiences has published a simple manual aimed at assisting arts organisations to assess and improve customer service to the public and users.  The publication is available to download in this month's edition. 

We remind you that the Arts Council will host a landmark conference on 25 and 26 November at the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick to mark 25 years of Arts Council local authority partnership. The conference will explore the role of the arts and culture in achieving local economic and social development objectives, and how we can unlock the potential of future integrated planning in these areas.  Further information and registration is available on the 25:25 website

The Arts Council and the University of Limerick have announced plans to develop dance education and professional training in Ireland. The joint initiative is being undertaken to investigate the creation of a new framework called the 'Step Up programme'.  More information on this initiative is available in this edition. 

Elsewhere in the newsletter, we announce the recipients from the latest round of Bursary Awards and we publish the decisions from the pilot schemes in theatre and dance for 2010-2011. The decisions from the latest round of Deis Awards are also make available. 

Finally, the newsletter rounds off with our regular articles on news from the arts community and international news from the Cultural Contact Point
