Deadline: Deis Scheme - 5:30pm, Thursday, 17 May 2012

The purpose of the Deis scheme is to provide support for traditional arts projects, or projects involving collaboration between the traditional arts and other artforms, that are in line with the Arts Council’s policy on the traditional arts. Deis supports one-off or short-term projects only.

Priority is given to projects that demonstrate: 

  •  attention to artistic quality
  •  innovation
  •  significant benefit to the traditional arts community


Applications for projects involving activity addressing cultural diversity are welcome.

Deis is open to individuals, groups, bands and organisations.

The Deis closing date is 5.30pm, Thursday, 17 May 2012 - If your activity is due to commence after 8 June 2012.

For futher information about the Deis scheme see here.


(There will be one further round of Deis offered later in the year with a closing date of Thursday 6 September 2012).


Please note

Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council’s online services website. Applicants who have not previously used this system must register in advance of making an application. It can take up to five days for registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.
