The Arts Council has primary responsibility for developing the artform of architecture in Ireland.
The Arts Council offers a wide range of financial supports across artforms and arts practices, including architecture.
Championing Architecture, the Arts Council's new architecture policy envisions a future where this artform can be experienced, valued and enjoyed by all.
Through our partnership
with Culture Ireland we support Ireland’s representation at the International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia.
