8. The Arts Council announces new policy on visual artists' workspaces

The Arts Council has announced a new policy on visual artists’ workspaces - Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland: A New Approach. This policy follows on from the Review of Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland, completed in 2009.

The policy aims to address the infrastructure of visual artists’ workspaces in Ireland in a way that is sensitive to the dynamics and diversity of the sector. Claire Doyle, Head of Visual Arts at the Arts Council said: "We are delighted to be launching a policy on visual artists’ workspace provision in Ireland. Although this infrastructure may not be immediately visible to the public, recognition and acknowledgement of the role it plays in supporting the work of visual artists is critical to the well-being of the visual arts sector in Ireland."

The policy can be found here.
