Vol 6 Issue 10
30 June 2009

Welcome to the June edition of the Arts Council Newsletter

In this month's edition of the newsletter, the Arts Council makes available a publication on some of the challenges facing both the theatre sector and the Council regarding the funding of theatre production in the future. We have information on how the theatre sector can respond to the publication and advise the Council on their perspective; we also include information on theatre consultation sessions that will be held during the summer.

Also this month, we have an update on Arts Audiences, an initiative which the Arts Council is undertaking in partnership with Temple Bar Cultural Trust. We announce the recipient of the Location One Fellowship, an award to one artist to facilitate their participation in the international residency programme at Location One, a not-for-profit art centre in New York. We include details on how to apply for the Writers Fellowship in Trinity College Dublin, which is funded by the School of English and by a grant-in-aid from the Arts Council.

Elsewhere in the newsletter, you can find details on the recipients of the New Work Projects Award and the Once-Off Projects Award; we announce the results of second round of the Small Festivals Awards, and the Commissions Awards.  Finally we publish the results of the latest rounds of the Travel and Training Award and Deis.

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