Artist Support Scheme 2017.
Wicklow County Arts Office, Wicklow County Council announces the criteria and closing date for its three funding streams in 2017; the Artist Support Scheme, Arts Groups and Organisations Bursaries and the Arts Festival Fund. It is our intention through the extension of these schemes that rich and diverse projects will be cultivated for the county, which will nurture artists’ practice, create connectivity, generate new perspectives and voices within the cultural life of the county and support a myriad of high calibre arts events.
Important Please Note:
As with 2016, in 2017 there will be a merged countywide application process for these funds. This is to reflect the strategic shift in local government in the development of Municipal Districts in place of Town Councils. This means that where previously, arts organisations or individuals may have applied to a Town Council or both Wicklow County Council and a Town Council. Funding from all of the previous Town Council areas for the arts has now been centralised through the Arts Office. Budgets and funding have been adjusted accordingly to reflect this. There is now one streamlined application process to take place in January & February of 2017 for all applicants. This includes individual artists, arts organisations and arts festivals.
