Funding: Arts Council Covid-19 Crisis Response Award

The Arts Council has announced a €1 million fund to enable artists to make new and original art during the Covid-19 crisis.

The scheme, called the Arts Council Covid-19 Crisis Response Award, is designed to support the creation of new artistic work and its dissemination online for the public benefit. The Arts Council is creating a new digital platform so that people across the country can experience the work in their own homes.

The purpose of the award is to support the creation and dissemination of new artistic work either online, by broadcast or other virtual means, for the public benefit.

The award is open to any individual who can demonstrate a track record of professional practice as an artist, regardless of whether they are currently registered with the Arts Council, or whether they have ever applied for and/or received Arts Council funding in the past.

If you are not currently registered with the Arts Council’s Online Services website, you can do so here. Please note that it can take up to five working days for a registration to be processed.

Closing date for applications is 5.30pm, Thursday 16 April.
