Welcome to the October edition of our newsletter

As the Autumn evenings herald the end of summer, arts organisations and artists across the country begin to see the fruits of their programme planning.  Audiences are in for a treat and can expect the best of the arts, in all forms, over the coming months. The Arts Council is proud to have supported the development of this vibrant ecology. More importantly those delivering exciting work deserve enormous credit. It is a measure of the talent, resilience and determination of the arts community.

The upgraded Culturefox, recently launched by the Arts Council, is a new version of the free, online arts events guide that so many organisations and individuals have been using over the last number of years. Completely refashioned, with lightning-fast technical specifications and a crisp, clean design, Culturefox will help people around the country discover great arts and culture events near them. In addition to enjoying the advanced photo and video display to give a sense of the experience on offer, and a range of new features including sophisticated search, users – if they register – can personalise Culturefox to their tastes. If they bookmark an upcoming event of interest they will receive a ‘last chance’ reminder e-mail before it ends. Arts programmes are now more accessible than ever. Special thanks to Independent.ie for partnering with the Arts Council on Culturefox, and to Don Wycherley for launching it.

Connecting the arts in Ireland to the wider world is important for the Arts Council. It is a pleasure therefore to congratulate Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, on a successful joint Creative Europe bid with other European partner organisations. The ambitious proposal with arts organisations in Britain, Hungary, Spain, Finland and Germany sets a new marker for an Irish arts organisation, in that it is the largest funding amount from European cultural funds for a project led by an Irish cultural organisation. The proposal to establish a Europe-wide partnership to enhance professional opportunities and training for collaborative artists was awarded over €1.4m.  The COLLAB Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) will initiate an ambitious trans-national programme to be delivered over a period of 46 months.

And finally, the Arts Council's application window for our main revenue grants programmes (i.e. for Regularly Funded Organisations, Annual Funding and Annual Programming Grants) which opened on 9 September closes on 10 October. Please be aware that we will be unable to accept applications after 5.30pm on 10 October 2014.

Yours sincerely,


 Orlaith McBride

Director
