Vol 8 Issue 5
31 January 2011

Welcome to the January edition of the Arts Council newsletter

We start the year off with a new strategic overview Developing the Arts in Ireland: Arts Council Strategic Overview 2011 – 2013 and confident that, despite all the challenges, 2011 will be a good year for arts.

This month's newsletter has some exciting updates from Arts Audiences, including the expansion of its partnership with Google Ireland.  An information session with Google staffers will be held in February and the New Media Mentoring Scheme, which provides mentoring to arts organisations hoping to build relationships with audiences online, will run again this year. Arts Audiences also invite applications for the Build Your Audience Scheme which will be of interest to all who are keen to focus on cultural tourism and how to attract domestic and international visitors.

Also in this month’s edition the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport, in partnership with the Arts Council, announces grants for the Visual Artists’ Workspaces Minor Capital Grants 2010.  Grants of up to €15,000 were awarded to purchase/maintain essential equipment for the benefit of artists and/or to undertake improvements to the quality of the artists’ workspace. We also include the decisions for the latest rounds of Deis and the Music Capital Scheme 2010.

A reminder on the deadline for the next round of the Small Arts Festivals and Events Scheme is also included in this edition.

Finally, the newsletter rounds off with our regular article on news from the arts community and international opportunities from the Cultural Contact Point

Director
