The Building Capacity Support Scheme is available across all art forms and arts practice areas supported by the Arts Council.
Purpose of this Scheme
In light of the unique circumstances presented by Covid 19, the Capacity Building Scheme has been developed as a once off award to support arts organisations to gain support, skills and expertise to review and adapt their artistic and/or business models and support their strategic development. It supports activities which will assist in building capacity; in developing inclusivity; and/or in growing peer support and collaborations.
The award guidelines award can be downloaded from the available funding section of the Arts Council's website.
Who can apply:
The award is open to organisations only.
Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council's online services website and all supporting material must be submitted online. Applicants who have not previously used the online services site must register in advance of making an application. It may take up to five working days for your registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.
We now provide updates and assistance on the use of online services through our new Facebook page. Feel free to post or send us a message via the page if you need online services support when making a Capacity Building Support Scheme application: http://www.facebook.com/artscouncilireland
