The Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny will be supported in their work with the Gallery of Photography in Dublin and Nerve Centre in Derry on a project entitled: Reframing 100: Digital Collaborations. A €15,000 grant was awarded to promote three new Reframing 100 creative collaborations.
Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD said: “I am delighted to announce the allocations under the Cooperation with Northern Ireland Funding Scheme for 2021. The scheme provides a platform for cultural exchanges and joint projects from organisations on both sides of the border and has produced some fascinating and valuable projects over the years.
“This year’s allocations cover everything from photography to art to music and will be well received across the island of Ireland. I wish all of those who participate as part of these projects the best and I thank those whose ingenuity and creativity have made these projects possible.”
