Art Grants 2013, Cork City Council

Posted by admin

Cllr Kieran McCarthy, a member of Cork City Council’s arts committee, is inviting all community and voluntary groups throughout the south east ward to avail of Cork City Council’s Arts Grant Scheme 2013. Arts grants provide direct revenue funding for groups in support of their core work. Cork City Council will also early next year offer artist bursary awards to individual artists. Commenting Cllr McCarthy noted that “there are many groups who contribute to the creative arts and culture of Cork city; in the south east ward alone there are several groups involved in providing drama education, dance instruction, music instruction and even perform for our local communities sending out the right positive message in these times. The arts grants provide much needed finance to keep such organisations going. The money is there; please apply for it. Our communities would be less spirited because of your presence”.

Applications should be made on the official application form, which is available from the Arts Office, T.E.A.M. Unit, Corporate Affairs, City Hall. Application forms are also available from www.corkcity.ie and by email from arts@corkcity.ie. The Grant is provided to a number of professional arts organisations and community and voluntary groups throughout the city area. Completed application forms, accompanied by the documentation specified on the application form, should be returned to the Arts Office T.E.A.M. Unit, City Hall, Cork, not later than Friday 18 December 2013.
