In response to the Festival and Events Scheme Review 2017, the Arts Council is pleased to announce a new support to festivals to help develop their programming and organisational capacity through individual training and travel awards.
The award will provide outbound travel and training support for festival representatives such as programmers, festival curators and directors to enhance their festival programme development; and inbound awards that allow festival organisations to establish relationships abroad with the aim of developing their programming, marketing and/or administrative/operational capacity.
The maximum award available is €1,500 and is subject to availability.
Applications will be available through online services from 1 December 2018 for travel in 2019.
Please Note: A festival (whether an individual festival representative or organisation) may receive only one Travel and Training award in any one calendar year.
