The Limerick Arts Office is accepting applications from individual artists or organisations under the ‘Grants Under the Arts Act’ scheme. The Limerick Grants Under the Arts Act Scheme 2023 is now closed for applications.
Limerick City and County Council offers grant funding to amateur, community or voluntary groups, or organisations, and individual arts practitioners, which in the opinion of the authority, will stimulate public interest in the arts, promote the knowledge, appreciation and practice of the arts or assist in improving the standards of the arts.
In the 2003 Arts Act, the arts are defined as painting, sculpture, architecture, music, film, drama, dance, literature, design in industry and the fine arts and applied arts generally. The awards can be used for the professional development of artists, the arts and increasing access and participation in the arts.
All ‘Grants Under the Arts’ applications are considered by an independent assessment panel, appointed by the Arts Office of Limerick City and County Council. The assessment panel meet to assess and make recommendations on all eligible applications. Their recommendations then go before a Limerick City and County Council meeting for approval.
