Vol 7 Issue 6
26 February 2010

Welcome to the February edition of the Arts Council newsletter

This month, the Arts Council announced more than 350 funding decisions for 2010, an investment totaling in excess of €49 million. These decisions, which were made in the context of an extremely difficult budgetary environment, represent the Council’s major grants to organisations. The full list is available in this month's newsletter. The remaining grants and awards, which also offer opportunities for new and emerging artistic talent, will be announced throughout the year. This month’s newsletter provides details on Project Awards and also includes details on the upcoming deadline for the Commissions Awards.
 
We have information on Art-Youth-Culture: FYI, an initiative of the Arts Council’s young people, children and education team, supported through the EU Youth in Action Programme and administered by Léargas. This new initiative invites those between the ages of 15 and 23 to discuss the participation of young people in cultural life and the arts for a three day event.

In addition, the Arts Council calls for nominations for Ireland’s first laureate for children’s literature. Laureate na nÓg is an initiative of the Arts Council with the support of the Office of the Minister for Children, Children’s Books Ireland and Poetry Ireland.  We also include a call for applications for Visual Artists in Prison Scheme, an initiative which allows artists to work with prisoners in one of the country’s prison/detention centres for a period of 10 days.

We also have an update on the New Media Mentoring Scheme from Arts Audiences, and welcome the addition of Google Ireland to the mentoring team.

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