Creative Production Supports

Deadline: Creative Production Supports, Thursday, 3 June, 2021 at 5.30pm

The window for making an application opens on Tuesday, 4 May, 2021.

The Arts Council will offer Creative Production Supports in the following areas:  Dance, Theatre and Young People, Children and Education.


This initiative is informed by key goals contained within the Arts Council strategy, Making Great Art Work,and the Arts Council’s current performing-arts polices, which seek to support artists at all stages of their careers to create work of excellence that engages widely and deeply with the public. Informed by this, and following a process of consultation, the Arts Council seeks proposals that collaborate with the existing infrastructure to provide additional, arts-led production supports for the independent performing-arts sector, particularly those in receipt of Arts Council Project Awards and Arts Grant Funding. In particular, this pilot seeks to support the artforms of theatre and dance, and work that focuses on children and young people’s engagement with the arts from birth to early adulthood.


The award guidelines can be downloaded from the available funding section of the Arts Council's website the last week in April.

Who can apply:

The award is open to organisations and individuals.


The deadline for this award is 5.30pm on Thursday 3 June, 2021.  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.
