Welcome to the March edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

The Arts Council is pleased to announce that we are holding a conference on 19 April in the National Gallery entitled Effective philanthropy and corporate fundraising can help grow non-statutory income.  The conference is structured to provide practical tips and essential ‘know how’ on recessionary management, effective philanthropy and corporate fundraising. We are encouraging two representatives from each funded organisation to attend. Full details on the conference and how to register are available in this month’s newsletter.

This month the publication by the Government of Innovation Ireland - the report of the innovation taskforce – was very welcome.  It underscored how the arts can be used to drive jobs in the digital economy and creative industries.  A link to the report on the Department of the Taoiseach can be found here.

In March, the Arts Council released two publicationsAn Integrated Dance Strategy 2010 -2012 outlines how the Arts Council intends to build on its review of Partnership for the Arts, and Giving Body to Dance is a summary report of the review of building based infrastructures for dance.  We also make available two new resources on child protection and welfare for arts organisations who work with children and young people. 

The Arts Council announces that it will provide bursaries for up to five places on the Clore Leadership Short Courses in 2010; and provides information on the deadline for the next Young Ensembles Scheme and the Frameworks scheme. We introduce the Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme - 2010, and also announce the recipients of the Dance on the Box Scheme 2010, the Reel Art award and the latest rounds of Deis.  

We have information on Art-Youth-Culture: FYI - a meeting of young people and policy makers that took place this March and introduce futurearts.ie an online forum, which has been designed and managed by Exchange Dublin, a youth-led arts collective, as part of Art-Youth-Culture: FYI. We have an update on Vital Signs: Arts & Health in Context; the website has been updated with papers, podcasts, articles and images from the events and also inform you of a public seminar on the traditional oral arts which will take place in April in Galway.

Finally, closing the newsletter are our regular articles from the Cultural Contact Point and news from the arts community.
