Call for Expressions of Interest for Limerick City and County Creative Animation Grant Scheme - Part of the Guiding Limerick Through Covid-19 - for activities taking place between 1st July and 31st August 2020.
Limerick City and County Council is committed to supporting the economic and social recovery of Limerick City Centre as the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
The Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the way we live our lives. As we move through the reopening stages, we want to explore how we can harness this crisis to bring about positive change in Limerick. We want to creatively use our public spaces to reflect the new normal of the city centre experience. This means allowing footpath widening and family activities to take place during the summer months.
Who Can Apply?
We are inviting Expressions of Interest from local community groups, companies, creatives and producers for Limerick City and County Animations and Activities, to take place in July and August 2020. Proposals should provide family friendly experiences in our open air public spaces and urban areas. Limerick City and County Council are committed to the fair and equitable remuneration of artists, performers and creative producers in Limerick. In line with these commitments, a fund has been allocated to specifically support costs associated with performer, facilitator, artist and event/ production fees. This is a limited fund. Applications will be assessed on a first come first serve basis. Therefore Limerick City and County Council will not be in a position to fund all applications received. The scheme will remain open until the fund has been allocated. Once the fund is allocated the scheme will be closed with notice of this published on Limerick.ie.
Covid-19 and Supporting Recovery in Limerick Grants will be awarded to proposals that clearly demonstrate compliance with National Covid-19 Guidelines, and the Guiding Limerick Through Covid-19. We strongly advise that applicants include all relevant information regarding activity health and safety, insurance and risk assessments with special attention to Covid-19 guidelines.
