Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Support for Individual Artists Programme (SIAP)

Arts Council of Northern Ireland: Information on SIAP Funding for Artists

Online Information Session via Zoom.

Recorded on the 1st of July 2020 and open to all artists, this meeting aims to provide information on the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Support for Individual Artists Programme.

The SIAP Programme includes the following strands:

  • General Arts Awards
  • Artists Career Enhancement Scheme
  • Major Individual Award
  • Artists’ International Development Fund (Individuals)
  • Self Arranged Residencies

SIAP is open to artists of all disciplines and in all types of working practice, who have made a contribution to artistic activities in Northern Ireland for a minimum period of one year within the last five years.

In a limited number of cases, individual technical staff/administrators of professional artistic companies may also be eligible.

Due to the exceptional circumstances this year, applications are welcomed from artists who are currently in receipt of Arts Council’s support through its existing Support for Individual Artists Programme.

Please note however, that individuals are unable to hold two awards concurrently. Should currently funded SIAP individual artists wish to submit an application, you must ensure that the project for which you apply does not start until your current project is completed.
