Arts Council of Northern Ireland announces funding to help musicians purchase new instruments

Arts Council of Northern Ireland announces funding to help musicians purchase new instruments

November 6, 2020

Thanks to capital investment of £300,000 from the Department for Communities, three funding programmes have opened under Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Musical Instruments Scheme, offering support for artists and groups to purchase instruments up until March 2021.

The scheme is good news for marching bands, non-professional and professional performing groups, community groups, professional musicians and schools that may be eligible to apply to purchase instruments and music-making equipment. The Musical Instruments Scheme is designed to increase the quality of music-making in Northern Ireland and to ensure as many groups and individuals as possible have an opportunity to purchase new instruments.
