Emergency Grants Programme for Arts and Cultural Organisations in Northern Ireland Re-Opens

Applications are being invited from small to medium scale arts and cultural organisations in Northern Ireland that have a proven track record of quality work and public engagement, supported by public funding in one of the last three financial years.

Grants of up to ÂŁ25,000 will be awarded to assist organisations most in need due to loss of income or operational capacity up to 31 March 2021, enabling them to continue to develop and/or deliver activities. Organisations can also apply for funding to explore ways of working that will help them to adapt and respond to the current changing circumstances. This could include a period of research, development and/or delivery of creative activity/projects by 31 March 2021.

The grants can cover costs such as:

  • Costs of artists and tutors (including fees, accommodation, subsistence, travel).
  • Rent.
  • Staff (except for staff who have taken up the offer of the Government’s furlough scheme).
  • Overheads.
  • Urgent operational costs.
  • Organisational/skills development to ensure you are fit for purpose during and after COVID-19.
  • Specialist skills for online presentation of existing or new work.
  • Modest investments in capital equipment where this is related to project design and/or delivery and/or specific project costs.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on 17 September 2020. Click here for more information.
