22 September 2009: Visual artists’ workspace minor capital grant

Visual Artists Ireland, on behalf of the Arts Council, invites applications for grants towards the cost of equipment and/or improvements to the quality of visual artists’ workspaces. Following the Council’s recent ‘Review of Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland’, it particularly recognises the extent of legitimate need for capital investment in visual artists’ workspaces at the present time.
The scheme will award capital grants of up to €5,000 to purchase/maintain essential equipment for the use of artists and/or to undertake improvements to the quality of the artists’ workspace. The total fund available is up to €97,000.

The deadline for applying for this scheme is Thursday, 5 November at 5:30p.m.
