In keeping with the Council’s policy document Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland – A New Approach (DOC, 0.18 MB), this scheme has the aim of assisting artists workspaces throughout the country to provide the best possible environment for working visual artists and, where feasible, to enable a level of subsidy for resident visual artists.

The scheme will award grants of up to €30,000 towards running costs such as light, heat, rent, administration and/or appropriate management costs. (Capital costs cannot be applied for through this scheme).
