Arts Festival Support Scheme

The Arts Office of Leitrim County Council with the support of the Arts Council is now accepting applications for the 2015 Arts Festivals Support Scheme.

Arts Festival Support Scheme is open to organisations that promote arts festivals with a clear artistic purpose that will take place in 2015. Applicants should emphasise how their proposals will stimulate interest in the arts, promote the knowledge, appreciation and practice of the arts or assist in improving standards in the arts. Applicants will be assessed on the quality and ambition of the proposed activities and the feasibility and the completeness of applications in terms of budget and personnel, and other planning such as Health and Safety, Child Welfare Policies etc. Given the limitations of current resources, it will not be possible to fund all applicants and available funding will be allocated to those applications which best meet the programme criteria.

Completed applications, marked “Arts Festivals Support Scheme”, should be returned to Leitrim County Council Arts Office, Aras an Chontae, Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim by Wednesday 16th March 2015.
