The Arts Council Northern Ireland is the development agency for the arts in Northern Ireland. ACNI investment supports the full range of arts activity throughout Northern Ireland. From theatre and literature to art in the community, we work in partnership with hundreds of artists, arts organisations and venues to deliver great art to more people every year. Our five year strategy document, Creative Connections, outlines the key aims and objectives of the Arts Council. This document is an important starting point for artists and arts organisations seeking financial assistance as it outlines our current funding priorities.
