Welcome to the September edition of our newsletter

Following a successful initiative in May, Arts Audiences is again working with Google, this time to assist organisations in the use of google ad words here . This is just one way that we as an arts community who are striving to be innovative, can more effectively reach out to audiences. Informing,  growing and developing audiences no longer depends exclusively on a big marketing spend. There are a myriad of free and cost effective social media tools that provide a significant platform for practitioners and arts organisations. Our challenge as a creative community is to use those tools.  We exist for our audiences and broader constituency and that audience is now accessible through many new channels. We would urge as many organisations as possible to avail of the many training opportunities available through Arts Audiences over the coming year.

Arts Advisers are a critically important link between the Council and the practice of individual art forms. In addition to appointing a new Music Adviser here we are now tendering for advisers in Architecture; Circus; Street Arts & Spectacle; Film; Opera; Theatre; and Traditional Arts. Each contract will be offered separately here.

The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon’s Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme has been open to applications from Northern Ireland since beginning in 2010. However, support for performances / exhibitions in Northern Ireland by companies and organisations from the republic of Ireland required a separate application to the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

Both Arts Councils have now agreed to work together to encourage organisations and individuals to extend tours across the border, so the next round of the Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme for July to December 2014 will contain provision for applications to include performances in Northern Ireland. The application process will be streamlined to make it as straightforward as possible for companies / artists in each jurisdiction to tour both North and South here .

Summer 2013 was an outstanding showcase of Irish arts talent at festivals around the country. The diversity of art forms in a myriad of locations demonstrated again, how public funding for the arts is delivering for diverse communities and audiences.  As we enter the autumn and an early budget, we will work tirelessly to ensure that this message is heard by all at government level. 

Yours sincerely,

 

Orlaith McBride
