Welcome to the November edition of the Arts Council Newsletter.

In this month’s newsletter: 

  • We’ll tell you about a great Laureate for Irish Fiction event taking place on Sunday, 7 December, in the Irish Film Institute in Temple Bar, where we will be celebrating the best in Irish fiction writing.

 

 

  • You can read about the Arts Council’s new mapping tool which, through the use of census data, will allow arts venues profile their potential audiences.

 

  • Also, Kids’ Own, in partnership with the Department of Education & Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht, are developing a new initiative – the Arts in Education Portal – and they are running consultations to hear your thoughts.

 

  • You will find information about how to register for Arts Audiences focus day in Dublin Castle on the 9 December. The day is for marketing and organisation managers with a primary responsibility for growing audiences and finally see how the Culture Office gives notice for the calls for proposals for the Creative Europe Literary Translations and the Support to European Platforms strands, in addition to some information on Erasmus + programme.

 

  • We would like to welcome Seóna Ní Bhriain,  who commenced in the role, Head: Young People, Children and Education, this week.

 

  • We send our congratulations this month to the Irish Theatre Institute, which is now displaying on their beautiful new website -- www.irishtheatre.ie/events -- live theatre, dance and opera events.  The development uses the Arts Council’s Culturefox.ie API, so that artists and arts organisation need only list an event once, but it can be displayed on many different websites.

 

  • The Arts Council is currently tendering for suitably qualified persons or companies for work in two separate spheres, audience development and public art. More details here.

 

 

  • Finally, as part of its strategy development, the Arts Council recently engaged Pathfinder/Bricolage to carry out qualitative research into perceptions of the arts with small groups around Ireland. The insights from this exercise were surprising, challenging, encouraging and compelling, sometimes all at once…so much so that we would like to share them with stakeholders. We have arranged two presentations; 11 am on Tuesday 25 November in Galway’s Taibhdhearc , and 11 am on Thursday 27 November in Dublin’s Smock Alley. If you would like to join us, please request a ticket by e-mail to info@artscouncil.ie and type GALWAY or DUBLIN in your subject line.
