Arts Council – Arts Grant Funding


The purpose of Arts Grants Funding is to ensure that there is a breadth of high-quality arts activity and programmes throughout the country. It offers flexible support for a fixed period of time, and in so doing responds to the needs of those who are making, presenting and supporting work.

Arts Grant Funding is intended to:

  • Support more than one distinct arts activity taking place within a fixed period of time, or
  • Provide supports or facilities to artists over a fixed period of time.

The focus of Arts Grant Funding is to deliver outcomes that develop the arts, either through:

  • Generating high-quality experiences for the public to engage with the arts, or
  • Providing excellent services, resources or facilities that support the work of artists or the arts sector and
  • Contributing to the ecology of the arts within your area of practice.

Applications can be made to cover the costs of activities taking place from either January-December 2023, or January 2023-December 2024.

The Guidelines are available here.

Who can apply?

Arts Grant Funding is available across all artforms and arts practice areas, and is open to organisations and individuals.

Note: Individuals applying must demonstrate that their proposal involves collaboration and/or partnership that include the delivery of public outcomes or outcomes that benefit other artists
