Vol 8 Issue 1
30 September 2010

Welcome to the September edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

Cultural Tourism: With 2011 in mind, the Arts Council and Fáilte Ireland have organised a day-long information session to assist arts organisations in accessing the help they require to make the most of tourism opportunities.   The day is co-ordinated by Arts Audiences and will include information for arts organisations on the cultural tourism landscape, tourism activities in 2011, practical examples for arts organisations on how to attract visitors and information on how to access the supports required to make the most of any tourism opportunities. The event will take place on 18 November at Farmleigh House in Dublin.

In September, the Arts Council launched a pamphlet, Cultural Diversity and the Arts: Language and Meanings and announced a new policy for cultural diversity and the arts.  The policy will inform the work of the Arts Council over the coming years and it is intended that the pamphlet will be a practical resource to support the sector in developing its thinking and practice in this area. 

We are delighted to mark the 25 year partnership between the Arts Council and local authorities by organising a conference on local arts development which will be held on 25-26 November 2010 in the Irish World Academy, University of Limerick.  The conference will explore the role of the arts and culture in achieving local economic and social development objectives, and ask how we can unlock the potential of future integrated planning in these areas.

Also in this month's edition the Council requests expressions of interest from organisations with significant arts and health expertise interested in developing an independent national arts and health website.  In addition, we include an article from the Wheel, Ireland’s national support and representative group for community, voluntary, charitable organisations with advice for organisations on cost-cutting measures.

We announce the deadline for Reel Art 2010, a scheme designed to provide film artists with a unique opportunity to make highly creative, imaginative and experimental documentaries on an artistic theme.  The upcoming deadlines for the Music Recording Scheme, the Performance and Touring Award and the Music Capital Scheme are also highlighted in this month's newsletter. 

We finish off the newsletter with our regular articles on news from the arts community and international opportunities from the Cultural Contact Point, including information on an info event for traditional arts organisations and practitioners.
