ONLINE PERFORMANCE & PRESENTATION GRANTS

FACEBOOK Ireland with Culture Ireland and have come together to support and present live presentations by Irish artists (in English or Irish) to ensure that the arts continue to be enjoyed online – #IrelandPerforms – during the Covid-19 crises.

This grant scheme will support professional artists and enable the live presentation of their work on online platforms for an initial period of 4 weeks (from April 3rd). Funding of €100,000 is being made available on a match funded basis by FACEBOOK Ireland and Culture Ireland, a division of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. All successful artists will be awarded €1,000. The scheme will be managed by Culture Ireland in conjunction with First Music Contact and Poetry Ireland in association with RTÉ.

Full details of the scheme are available here and an application form is available here.

Please see here for a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Application forms should be forwarded to showcases@cultureireland.gov.ie

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and while the scheme is open to all, special consideration will be given to artists whose work was scheduled for public presentation internationally or in Ireland and has been cancelled owing to the crisis.

Artists will be streamed through FACEBOOK Live and other social media platforms using the hashtag #IrelandPerforms and distributed as widely as possible through Instagram and Facebook Pages, including those of Culture Ireland, Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, First Music Contact and Poetry Ireland.
