Introduction

In this month’s newsletter the Arts Council is pleased to announce that Jo Mangan is the recipient of the Jerome Hynes Fellowship 2011/2012

The Arts Council will shortly begin a dialogue with the opera sector and other stakeholders in relation to future provision of opera - see information below.

We have information on the Visual Artists’ Workspace Scheme 2012 which awards grants of up to €30,000 towards running costs e.g. light, heat, rent, artists’ development programmes, administration and/or appropriate salary costs. The funding will be offered on a once-off basis for 2012.

We also have some reminders, for example, notification of the forthcoming grant application deadline; our Small Festivals Scheme 2012 (Round one) and the Deis Awards deadline. The Arts Council is also pleased to announce that on-line applications will open in early September 2011 for a new advance planning strand of the Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme.  

We also include decisions relating to the Local Authority Partnership Scheme. This Scheme is designed to encourage and support partnerships and new collaborations between local authorities, arts organisations and others.  Decisions in relation to our three Theatre Schemes are also provided with over €300,000 allocated. The Arts Council introduced this initiative in 2010 as part of our ongoing support for the production and presentation of theatre.

The Arts Council wishes theatre companies success at the 1stIrish Festival in New York. Fishamble (Dublin), Tall Tales (Navan) and Cirque de Légume (Sligo) are all participating in the month-long festival which begins on 5 September.

We have some news in the arts in the community section. Finally I am pleased to say the Arts Council has been shortlisted in the eGovernment Award Category in the forthcoming Dot ie Net Visionary Awards organised by the Irish Internet Association.  This is in recognition of our Online Services website. See www.iia.ie/net-visionary/vote/ for category shortlist and public voting information. The category winner will be announced on 30 September.

 

Director, Mary Cloake
