In light of the unique circumstances presented by COVID-19, the COVID-19 Completion Funding Scheme has been developed as a once-off award to enable Arts Council-funded projects or activities to be completed and/or realised.
The award is intended to cover COVID-19 related costs, including those associated with implementing national and/or sectoral safety guidelines. It is designed to enable work funded under the programmes outlined below to be completed and/or realised in line with the artistic intention of the original funded proposal, and, in doing so, ensure that artists and arts workers are supported to make work.
The award is open to individuals/organisations awarded funding in 2019 for activity in 2020 under the following funding programmes:
Arts Grant Funding 2020
Projects 2020 (all artforms and practices)
Opera Projects and Production Award 2020
Reel Art 2019
Authored Works 2019
Engaging with Architecture 2019
