Applications are being sought by the Arts Office of Clare County Council for the 2017 annual Arts Grants.

Aimed at developing and promoting the arts in the county, grants will be awarded in three areas. These are; support to individual artists, organisational support, and support for projects and events.

Siobhán Mulcahy, Clare County Arts Officer said it was a very popular scheme with close to one hundred applicants last year. “Under the 2003 Arts Act, the arts are defined as painting, sculpture, architecture, music, film, drama, dance, literature, design in industry and the fine arts and applied arts generally. The awards can be used for the professional development of artists, the arts and/or increasing access and participation in the arts.”

Friday February 17th is the closing date for applications. To apply visit or contact the County Arts Office 065 6899091 /
