Printer-friendly version
 
One hundred and twelve artists and arts organisations have reaped the benefits of Dublin City Council’s Art Service Plan.  530,000 in arts grants has been awarded to fund projects, festivals and events throughout the city.
The 530,000 award fund, which has remained constant over the last number of years despite cutbacks, has been divided amongst artists and arts organisations whose applications were complementary to the following objectives:
  • Achieving quality provision of the arts and cultural services
  • Supporting the established and emerging artist
  • Ensuring equality of public access to and participation in the arts, particularly through the city neighbourhoods
  • Encouraging awareness, education and research in the arts
  • Supporting the sustainable and strategic development of arts initiatives
Speaking of the award fund, Dublin City Council Arts Officer Ray Yeates said “It’s great to see such a wealth of ideas coming from Dublin artists and arts organisations. 242 applications for funding were made to Dublin City Council’s Arts Office, an increase of 22% on 2012’s applications. It is indicative of the growing number of people in this city dedicated to the arts”.
Since 2012, the award fund has been reorganised into three categories:
  • Revenue -For regularly funded organisations only (To receive 312,000 in 2013)
  • Neighbourhood/Voluntary – For local and Voluntary projects and organisations (To receive 90,000 in 2013)
  • Project - For one off initiatives (To receive  128,000 in 2013)

Dublin City Council will begin accepting applications for next year from Oct. 2013.
