The Chair of the Arts Council, Prof Kevin Rafter, has welcomed the announcement by the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan of €80m funding to the Arts Council for 2020.
Speaking today, Prof. Rafter said,
“Given the very difficult budgetary environment in the context of Brexit, the Arts Council is pleased with the announcement of €80m in funding for 2020. This investment will allow the Arts Council to continue its work in supporting artists to develop their practice, enabling organisations to create work of excellence and allowing people across the country have access to high quality arts experiences. We look forward, once the Brexit uncertainty has been resolved, to continuing discussions with Minister Madigan on increased funding for the arts”.
