Welcome to the March edition of the Arts Council newsletter

In March, members of the Arts Council and the executive met with the Joint Committee on Arts, Sport, Tourism, Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.  The subject up for discussion was arts funding, and particularly maintaining arts funding during the economic downturn. We include information on this lively discussion in the newsletter.

We are pleased to announce two additional ethical resources for artists and arts organisations working with children and young people.  The resources build on the Guidelines for the protection and welfare of children and young people and were published in response to requests from the arts sector. These important new resources were developed in consultation with individual artists, arts organisations, the Health Service Executive Keeping Safe Information and Advice Persons.

Elsewhere in the newsletter, we have an update on the Touring Experiment, an action research project designed to inform and shape future policy for touring in the Republic of Ireland, and we  remind readers of the new public art website which should go live at the end of April.   

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