Waterford City & County Council's Arts resource site

Resources & Covid-19

The Arts Service will continue to support artists and arts organisations during this crisis. Obviously many plans will need to be changed so that you can continue to carry out the kind of programme as near to the one you envisaged. If its a programme or a project that you received funding for by Waterford City & County Council and you want to talk to us about how to progress it under the current circumstances – feel free to contact us via the emails below. Our view is that your project is worthwhile. We are interested in helping you find a way to complete it.

Below is a series of links for resources and opportunities during the current Virus Crises. It is mainly for artists and art organisations/groups. If there is something you want to add to this page or want to see featured – contact arts officers: conornolan @ waterfordcouncil.ie or Margaret – morgan @ waterfordcouncil.ie

Keep safe.
