Vol 7 Issue 1
30 September 2009

Welcome to the September edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

The Arts Council has vowed to make a strong case for the retention of artists' tax exemption.  In a statement released this month, Pat Moylan, Chairman of the Arts Council speaks of the importance of artist exemption in enhancing Ireland's global cultural profile and in encouraging young artists to stay in Ireland.  She stresses that only two per cent of beneficiaries are considered high earners and that it is not a 'rich man's relief'.  Pat Moylan's full statement is available to read in this month's newsletter.

Also this month, we have more information on Vital Signs: Arts and Health in Context, an initiative which aims to promote arts and health as an innovative contemporary arts practice. Subscribers will be able to view the full exhibition programme and register for the conference on 15 October.

Arts Audiences introduces a new pilot scheme which aims to provide free expert tuition to a limited number of organisations on arts marketing and audience development.

We invite applications for grants towards the cost of equipment and/or improvements to the quality of artists' workspaces.  The decisions for the latest round of the Artist in the Community Scheme are announced.  We have information on the Reel Art Scheme and also remind you of the upcoming deadlines for Annual Programming Grants, the Arts and Disability Awards and the Music Capital Scheme.

The Council provides information on its plan to launch a new online services website in 2010 to give continuous access to selected Arts Council services seven days a week.  This newsletter also includes an important notice on Garda vetting and we remind organisations to consider the implications of H1N1 swine flu for their own operations and events.

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