The Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport, in partnership with the Arts Council, invites applications for grants towards the cost of equipment and/or improvements to the quality of artists’ workspaces. Following the Arts Council’s recent policy on ‘Visual Artists’ Workspaces - A New Approach’, where capital grants to visual artists’ workspaces were outlined as a priority, the Department 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 €15,000 to purchase/maintain essential equipment for the benefit of artists and/or to undertake improvements to the quality of the artists’ workspace. The total fund available is up to €140,000.
How to apply
The scheme is administered by Visual Artists Ireland on behalf of the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport and the Arts Council. Applications should be sent in hard copy and electronic format (word format) to:
