Welcome to the July edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

The Arts Council was delighted this month to welcome the appointment of Harry Clifton as the new Ireland Chair of Poetry. The Chair of Poetry has gained momentum and profile in recent years, attracting significant audiences and developing increased enthusiasm for poetry among students and the general public.  Taoiseach Brian Cowen officiated at an event in July marking the appointment.
 
Arts Audiences, a partnership between the Arts Council and Temple Bar Cultural Trust, published findings this month profiling levels of arts attendance in Ireland.  The report was commissioned by the Arts Council using data from Target Group Index, the largest study of consumer behaviour carried out each year in Ireland.  Attendance levels are shown to be robust.

We also include information on funding deadlines for a number of schemes and programmes:  

The Small Arts Festival Scheme 2011 is open to organisations that co-ordinate and promote festivals or events with a clear artistic purpose.  This scheme is intended for festivals that will take place in the calendar year 2011.

Project Awards are open to individuals and organisations for activities taking place in 2011.

Touring  - a new touring and dissemination scheme for 2011 with a strong focus on audience development is announced.

Pilot schemes in theatre and dance for 2010-2011 - a Dance Artist Residency, a Theatre Artist Residency, Theatre Development Funding and Theatre Resource-Sharing Funding are made available.  

Visual Artists' Workspaces, a new grant programme intended to assist group studios in providing the best possible environment for working visual artists is announced.

The deadline for the Arts and Disability Awards 2011 is also approaching. This award is a dedicated grant system for individual deaf or disabled artists, managed by the Arts and Disability Forum on behalf of the two Arts Councils of this island.

Also this month, the Council announces the funding decisions for the Local Partnership Scheme 2010, a scheme designed to encourage and support partnerships and new collaborations between local authorities, arts organisations and other relevant groups or organisations.   We also make available details of the latest recipients of the Deis Scheme
 
We finish off the newsletter with our regular articles on news from the arts community and international opportunities from the Cultural Contact Point.
