Waterford City Council’s Arts Office will be hosting a short training session tomorrow (Tuesday 11th) for anyone who is unfamiliar with the online-grant application system. People will be able to test the system under the guidance of the Arts Staff so as to eliminate difficulties that may arise later. 

There are three areas in which Waterford City Council is interested in investing:

Production of quality Arts Programmes

Audience Development/Inclusion

The Artist and the City

Under each area is a series of grants. Each application is competitive so when you are putting in your application proper it’s a good idea to have your proposal fine tuned before you start. For the purpose of the training session you don’t have to have this information in hand.

The session will be from 3pm to 4.45pm in the Computer Training Room in City Hall. Please go to reception and ask for directions.
