Applications are being invited for the Donegal Culture & Creativity Grants Scheme 2021.
The Scheme is offering 20 grants of €2,000 each to projects that encourage co-operation and collaboration between communities and heritage specialists. These include artists, culture professionals and/or creative industries to preserve, conserve, research, practice, exhibit, perform, instruct, engage, enhance, promote or address an aspect of the material or non-material culture in an original, imaginative or creative way.
Community groups and individuals may apply for funding for a project that addresses culture, heritage, arts or creative industries.
The Donegal Culture & Creativity Grants Scheme 2021 promotes collaboration and fosters creativity as envisaged in the Creative Ireland programme.
Creative Ireland is a culture-based programme designed to promote individual, community and national well-being.
Local Authorities across the country, including Donegal County Council, are working in partnership with Creative Ireland to deliver Pillar 2 of the Creative Ireland programme that aims to ‘Enable Creativity in Every Community’.
Creative Ireland defines culture as “The shared values, patterns of behaviour, customs and forms of expression that characterise different social groups and communities at any given time”.
This funding opportunity is being made available through the Creative Ireland programme which is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and Donegal County Council.
The closing date for receipt of applications is Wednesday 26 May at 12 noon.
