Visual Artists Ireland is the representative body for professional artists.
We provide practical support to visual artists in all art forms throughout their careers.
By joining Visual Artists Ireland you gain all the benefits of membership and become part of a larger representative body supporting and promoting the rights and status of individual artists. The larger the membership the greater the mandate the organisation has to represent the interests of individual artists and the art sector.
We deliver a lot of our services for free, but with membership you will find that there are additional supports that we offer. As well as contributing to the development of our services for individual professional artists, you will also be contributing to the on-going work that we undertake on the behalf of artists. We depend upon our membership fees and other forms of generated income to add to our Arts Council and Arts Council of Northern Ireland grants.
