Arts Council Funding Clinic

12.30pm – 1.30pm

Members of the the Art Council of Ireland’s Circus, Street Arts and Spectacle team will be attending the NCFI this year and in collaboration with ISACS will be hosting an information session and Q&A on Saturday morning straight after the Share Open Forum.

Adam O’Keefe (Advisor) and Laura Ivers (Support Manager) will be present to share an overview of the Arts Council’s funding programmes for circus, some tips for improving your applications and will open the floor to your questions!

The Arts Council very much recognises the vital and seminal role that NCFI plays in the circus arts ecosystem in Ireland and are delighted to be able to attend the festival to celebrate the return to live circus performance after such a turbulent time for the sector.
