The Touring of Work Scheme - Round 1 invites applications for proposals seeking funding to support the touring of work across all artform and arts practice areas for tours taking place in the Republic of Ireland starting from January to December 2025, with guidelines and application form to follow. Please note that the Touring of Work Scheme - Round 2 will occur later in 2024, with exact dates and details to be confirmed.
Please note, the Arts Council is currently reviewing the way we
fund touring and the parameters of this award are set to change. We consider
change to be an integral part of our role as the development agency for the
arts in Ireland. Changes to our decision-making and policy-making are informed
by data provided by the sector.
Recent changes we have made to the scheme:
- We have aligned the objectives and priorities of this award more
closely to the Arts Council strategy Making Great Art Work;
- Applications for tours planned throughout 2025 will be accepted;
- We have standardised the mandatory supporting material required
for all applicants – some exceptions remain, so please read this guidance
- We have added a new application artform area (MDA / Arts
Participation / YPCE). Applicants with a particular focus on Arts Participation
or YPCE should select this as their primary artform area;
- We have aligned our assessment and decision-making processes to
follow Arts Council peer-panel procedure.
