Visual Artists’ Grant

1st October 2009 by Maura McHugh

The Arts Council invites applications for grants towards the cost of equipment and/or improvements to the quality of artists’ workspaces. This follows the Council’s recent Review of Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland which recognised the need for capital investment in visual artists’ workspaces.

The scheme will award capital grants of up to €5,000 to purchase/maintain essential equipment for the use of artists and/or to undertake improvements to the quality of the artists’ workspace. The total fund available is up to €97,000.

The closing date for the Minor Capital Scheme is Thursday 5 November at 5.30pm.

The scheme is administered by Visual Artists Ireland on behalf of the Arts Council. Applications should be sent in hard copy and electronic format (word format) to:
