The next deadline for receipt of grant applications is 15 March 2012. Applicants planning events between start 05 2012 and up to end October 2012 should apply in this round as the Spring and Summer grant rounds are being combined due to budgetary restrictions.

Any artists or companies seeking support for productions in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe or inclusion in Culture Ireland’s Edinburgh showcases must also apply by this deadline. Applications should be submitted through the online form available on the Culture Ireland website. Further details can be found here.

Please note for Edinburgh applications priority will be given to those companies/artists who have suitable high-quality work available to tour for a period of at least 18 months after August, 2012. It is essential that the work has received a fully professional production in Ireland by the applicant/company prior to Edinburgh transfer.  The choice of venue and/or presenting companies/artists will be a key factor in the assessment of applications.

The following deadline will be 15 August, as usual, for the Autumn round, with respect to events from November 2012 onwards.
