Festivals and Events play a distinctive role in developing vibrant and sustainable cities and creating environments where people want to live, work and socialise. They offer important opportunities for residents, visitors and performers to interact in what is often a celebratory or commemorative context. They are important key drivers of economic and tourism growth providing incentive for people to meet, gather and engage in new and interesting ways. That context can be shaped by elements such as the locality, a sense of community and the commitment of those who organise the event, and, of course, by the energy, talent and vision underpinning the activities that are presented.
The Limerick Metropolitan GMA Festivals and Events Grant Scheme is the result of a strategic decision by the elected officials of the Metropolitan District to allocate €100,000 to provide a competitive scheme that offers funding under two strands:
Strand 1 - To support the research and development of concepts for new festivals/events.
Strand 2 - To build capacity around the delivery of existing festivals/events.
Please Note: This grant scheme applies only to festivals and events taking place within the Metropolitan District of Limerick.
Funding Amounts Available
Strand 1: Maximum €10,000
Strand 2: Unlimited
