The Arts Council recently published their three-year plan 2020-2022. This new Making Great Art Work three-year plan will continue much of the work started over the last three years, refining it, improving it and further developing it. The Arts Council has already identified a series of new actions building on the work already commenced as well as identifying new areas of focus.
Making Great Art Work plots the co-ordinates for the development of the arts in Ireland for the decade 2016-2025. The first three-year plan 2017-2019, saw the Arts Council commence the journey towards implementation of Making Great Art Work.
The new 2020-2022 plan marks a significant change for the Arts Council. The new plan will be more externally focused, engaging more with diverse communities across Ireland, placing equality and human rights at the centre of all our activities and providing opportunities for artists and arts organisations to develop their skills and capacities in innovative and new ways across the digital realm and in cross-disciplinary practice.
Over the next three years, the Arts Council will continue to prioritise the pay and conditions of artists across all disciplines and its funding framework will become more streamlined and simplified.
Furthermore, new systems have been developed to better capture and use data and evidence, and over the next three years the Council will work with the sector to enable them to use this data to support their programming and development. We will also use this evidence as part of a new advocacy programme.
The Arts Council will continue to work in partnership and across Government over the next three years to ensure to that the arts are central to all aspects of policy formation and decision-making in Ireland, building on Project Ireland 2040, Creative Ireland and Global Ireland 2025. Its strategic partnership with Local Authorities will continue to be central to all its work.
