The Arts Council is requesting all funded organisations and individuals to submit public events for inclusion in a new online guide. The site is already "live", http://events.artscouncil.ie, and will be formally launched shortly. The guide will be widely advertised and promoted.
The service is aimed at the general public, designed to showcase the impressive range of arts events right across the country -- and encourage people to attend and participate. Users can click on their county for an instant list of all local events, and can also search by artform, date and other criteria.
As well as being a very useful public service, helping to boost audiences, and encouraging cultural tourism, the Arts Council hopes the guide will help demonstrate the huge dividends to our society and economy from public investment in the arts.
Starting straight away, arts organisations and artists are requested to submit all public events.
Full instruction on to submit events are available on the Arts Council’s website:
