The purpose of this fund
Deis is a scheme established under the Arts Councils Traditional Arts Initiative, 2005-2008. Deis is aimed at encouraging and facilitating the traditional arts community to seek funding from the Arts Council for a range of projects.
The window for making applications through the online services website will open on 20 January 2015. Guidelines will be available in mid-December 2014.
Please note - Applications for projects that centre on the publication of work, such as tutorials, tune collections, critical writing, etc. will not be eligible for the Deis Award but are eligible for application to the Deis Recording & Publication Award, the deadline for which will be announced in early 2015.
Reporting on your completed project
If you receive funding you will be required to provide a report using the Deis and Deis Recording & Publications report form and the Income & Expenditure template when you request your final payment. Please see here for more information on reporting on your completed project and to download the report form and I&E template.
