Festival Investment Scheme 2019 Round 2

The Arts Council announces the second of two rounds of the Festivals Investment Scheme (FIS) for festivals taking place between July and December 2019 only.

The Arts Council’s role is to advocate for a diverse and varied arts festival ecology and to provide a chain of funding supports that encourage: models of national and international significance and best practice, models that increase opportunities for public engagement or develop the work of an artist/artform, festival programmes engaged with, and relevant to the local community.

The purpose of the Festival Investment Scheme is to provide support for small/local festivals to deliver their festival activity. The scheme is open to multi-disciplinary festivals, single artform festivals and ‘linked events’ that take place over a number of months (e.g. a concert series).

  • Band B: Between €7,001 and €20,000
  • Band C: Between €20,001 and €35,000
