Congratulations to the 11 Irish organisations awarded Co-operation Funding!

Congratulations to the 11 Irish organisations selected for Creative Europe Co-operation Funding in 2019! Nine Irish organisations are partners in new Co-operations projects with two - Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and Limerick Institute of Technology - taking the role as Lead Partners in projects. €3 million has been granted directly to Irish organisations during this Creative Europe Programme 2014 - 2020. 


Commenting on the 2019 Creative Europe Culture awards, Orlaith McBride, Director of the Arts Council, said: 


'This year there were 11 fantastic projects selected under Creative Europe with Irish partners. The Arts Council proudly supports many of the successful organisations through its Strategic Funding and Arts Grant Funding programmes and this success will further benefit not only the organisations themselves but also the wider sector, Irish audiences and communities. Irish arts and culture organisations continue to compete at the highest level in Europe building on past successes and growing their ambition with large scale innovative projects.'
