The ISACS Network fully endorse and support the National Campaign for the Arts Pre-Budget 2023 Submission, which outlines ten key asks of Government in the preparation of Budget 2023. These ten elements are fundamental to ensuring the continuation of the vital and progressive work of artists, arts workers, and arts organisations, who provide a wealth of benefits to Ireland’s 5 million+ citizens.

  1. Invest in the Arts: €150 million in funding to the Arts Council in 2023
  2. Bring Irish Arts to the World: €7 million in funding to Culture Ireland in 2023
  3. Nurture Communities: Retain current funding of Creative Ireland to 2027
