Reminder: Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme

Applications will be available through online services from Tuesday, 5 April 2016. The deadline for applications is Thursday, 5 May. The Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme is for tours beginning in the period January to June 2017.


As with previous rounds of the scheme we have agreed with our colleagues in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland to make it easier to organise tours across the border. This means that applications from the North and the South can include dates in either jurisdiction and if the application is successful, we will support all legs of the tour.


This is an incentive to companies and venues to work together in both jurisdictions to enable excellent work to be seen on the whole island. Since its introduction in 2010 the Touring schemes have been based on the principle of collaboration between those who produce and those who present work to audiences. So we hope that the two Arts Councils working together on this will help foster stronger ties between artists in the two jurisdictions.


For general details on the scheme, please contact Val Ballance or Regina O'Shea. If you have questions specifically related to art forms, then email the relevant team. All contact details are on the Arts Council's website Contacts page.
