Arts Council Ireland new Funding Framework (2018-2020)

Arts Council Ireland new Funding Framework (2018-2020)

Arts Council Ireland has announced its new funding framework (2018 – 2020) Making Great Art Work and held information sessions in Cork, Dublin and Sligo to explain the detail of the framework to artists and arts organisations.

Don’t worry if you missed them, you can watch a recording on their Facebook page here.
Arts Council Ireland will hold a workshop on 28 July specifically for organisations apply under their new Strategic Funding category, and plans to record that too.

This new framework is part of the Council’s commitment to review all existing funding programmes to ensure that the artist and public engagement is embedded across all of its future funding supports.


The framework includes five new funding categories under which artists and arts organisations can apply for funding:

· Artists’ Supports
· Project and Programme
· Strategic
· Partnership
· Development

The framework has been designed to deliver the following:

· A new open and transparent assessment and decision making process for artists and arts organisations who apply for Arts Council funding so that people can better understand the funding decisions made by the Council

· A better funding balance between the tried, tested and established arts organisations on the one hand and the new and experimental on the other

· New measures on the impact of investment in the arts so that the Council can advocate for the arts in a more robust way

· New multi-annual funding programmes that will allow arts organisations to plan more effectively
