Vol 6 Issue 12
31 August 2009

Welcome to the August edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

In this month's issue the Arts Council in partnership with Create presents Vital Signs, an Arts and Health Programme. The programme, which will be rolled-out this Autumn, will include an  arts and health conference to be held on 15 October and an exhibition taking place at a number of Dublin 8 venues from 14-21 October.

We encourage the arts sector to submit events for inclusion in the new 'what's on calendar'.  This free on-line guide aims to showcase the arts right across the country, encourage more people to attend or participate in more events, and demonstrate the enormous dividends that flow to society and the economy from public investment in the arts.

In conjunction with the Irish Film Board and RTÉ, we announce the successful recipients of FRAMEWORKS.  This scheme is aimed exclusively at the production of animated short films up to six minutes in duration; the projects selected for funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a broad audience.

Also in the newsletter, we remind you of upcoming deadlines for Annual Funding and Annual Programming Grants. We include details of the upcoming deadlines for the Small Arts Festival Scheme, the Music Recording Scheme and the Performance and Touring Award  and we also provide information on funding opportunities for artists with disabilities. We also give another reminder that the deadline for applying for a Bursary Award has been extended to 21 January 2010.

This newsletter also has some useful information on how the arts sector can deal with the swine flu pandemic and we also include a notice to Arts Council funded organisations on maximising tax take from donations/gifts.

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