The Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s has today opened its Support for the Individual Artist Programme (SIAP) and is accepting applications for General Art Awards.

Artists of all disciplines and in all types of working practice, who have made a contribution to artistic activities in Northern Ireland for a minimum of one year within the last five years, may apply. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the exceptional circumstances this has created, applications are welcomed from artists who are currently in receipt of Arts Council’s support through its existing Support for Individual Artists Programme.

Applications can be made for project assistance, travel grants or residencies, up to a maximum award of £3,000. Applicants are however being asked to give careful consideration to the feasibility, timing and presentation of their project given current Covid-19 restrictions.
