This scheme is not intended as a top up to existing funding under the Arts Councils recurring funding programmes (Annual Funding, Annual Programming, RFO). Organisations in receipt of funding under the Publications/Title by Title Scheme will not be eligible for funding under the Arts Councils recurring funding programmes for 2015/2016.
In advance of the deadline, the Arts Council will hold an information clinic at the Irish Writers' Centre, 19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 to offer advice and information on the application process. The clinic will be held on Wednesday 3 September from 11am until 12.30pm. To book a place at this clinic, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 22 August 2014. There is no cost to attend and we would ask participants to read the guidelines to the scheme in advance of attending the clinic.
