Offaly County Council announces details of the Arts Act Grants for 2014

Applications are now invited by Offaly County Council from community groups and individuals involved in the arts for funding for projects in 2014.

Applications are now invited by Offaly County Council from community groups and individuals involved in the arts for funding for projects in 2014.

The grant scheme is open to organisations such as drama and musical groups, town bands, choirs, voluntary community organisations and individual artists proposing projects within the community.

Funding is limited under this scheme and priority will be given to specific projects which are innovative, produce maximum community impact and provide professional arts and cultural experiences and applications should not be made without thought given to the above goals.

Arts Officer Sinéad O’Reilly said, “Inevitably there will be more applications than we have funding for, so the process is competitive. Cultural development is still integral to building communities and promoting the county, so we will support projects which will stimulate this process while providing a high quality experience for participants. It is important that the guidelines are read carefully before an application is made as we have refined them recently, and of course we are happy to answer any queries before applications are made.”

Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded here or requested by email from arts@offalycoco.ie or over the phone on 05793 57400. The closing date for all applications is Friday, February 14 at 3pm.
