The Arts Council and Create are delighted to announce a second round to the Artist in the Community Scheme 2020.


With additional funding from Government, we will now proceed with a second round of the Artist in the Community Scheme 2020.


This scheme offers funding to enable artists and communities of place/or interest to work collaboratively. The scheme is open to artists from any of the following artform disciplines: architecture, circus, street art and spectacle, dance, film, literature (Irish and English language), music, opera, theatre, visual arts and traditional arts. The projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts such as arts and disability, arts and health, arts and older people, arts and cultural diversity and arts and communities.


Application forms and guidelines for round two of Artist in the Community Scheme are now available to download from the AIC Scheme awards page.

Deadline for receipt of application is Monday 28 September 2020


The Artist in the Community Scheme is managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, on behalf of the Arts Council.
