Contributions to The Arts Grants Schemes 2019

Sligo County Council Arts Service invites applications under the following categories:

Arts Venues and Organisations

The objective of the Scheme is to support the arts sector in Sligo to play a distinctive role in developing a vibrant and sustainable arts environment at a local, regional, national and international level in partnership with Sligo County Council.

An annual programme of events and activities should present new ideas and ways of working that can have far reaching effects for artists and audiences.


Arts Festivals and Events

The objective of the Scheme is to support Festivals and Events that promote public engagement with the arts as their core aim.

A festival may represent one art form or may include a wide variety of different art forms. Festivals or events may also be programmed over a number of months (e.g. a concert series).

Sligo County Council recognises the valuable contribution made by active voluntary committees in developing and sustaining festivals and events.
