31 July 2012

Welcome to the July edition of our newsletter

In this month's newsletter: Ireland will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union from 1 January 2013 to the end of June 2013. To mark this, the Arts Council will run a special programme in partnership with the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and with financial support from the Department of the Taoiseach.

The Arts Council has introduced a new scheme to support festivals and events. This change follows from a review of aspects of Council's funding structures and systems and arises in the context of the current budgetary environment. The Festivals and Events Scheme, like its predecessor, will be open to multi-disciplinary festivals, single art form festivals, once-off events and concert series. There are three strands of funding available.

Also this month, the Arts Council announces a new scheme for the visual arts -- the Visual Arts Curator Residency Scheme. The purpose of this scheme is to offer visual arts curators the opportunity to research and develop their practice, while developing a year-long work programme in partnership with multi-disciplinary venues and local authorities. Also included in this month's newsletter is the Visual Artists’ Workspace Scheme 2013. Visual Artists Ireland, on behalf of the Arts Council, invites applications for grants up to a maximum of €30,000 towards the running costs of visual artists’ workspaces.

We also remind you about the Deis deadline, which is 5.30pm on Thursday 6 September 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. Deis supports one-off or short-term projects only.

We announce the Marketplace Pilot Scheme -- a wonderful opportunity for venues and promoters to engage and collaborate on projects right from their earliest stages – which is being run by our Arts Audiences initiative. Arts Audiences will also commence the second iteration of Touring Marketing Training for those in receipt of The Arts Council’s Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme January – June 2013.

The Arts Council is currently in the process of updating its Arts and Disability policy to reflect developments in provision and practice, and to take ongoing account of the requirements of disability and equality legislation.

The Arts Council is delighted to welcome our new Dance Adviser. Dr. Victoria O’Brien is a well-respected professional figure in Ireland having worked or collaborated with several dance organisations over the course of many years.

The newsletter rounds off with our regular article International opportunities from the (CCP) Cultural Contact Point.
