In keeping with the Council’s policy document Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland – A New Approach, 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 €40,000 towards running costs such as light, heat, rent, administration and/or appropriate management costs. (Capital costs cannot be applied for through this scheme).
