The Arts Council of Northern Ireland Small Grants Programme now Open
June 2, 2020
The ACNI Small Grants programme is now open for applications for projects commencing from 1st September 2020.
Organisations can apply for funding between £500-£10,000 to support the delivery of projects which contribute to the growth of arts in the community for new and existing audiences and which reflect the diversity of Northern Ireland’s society and culture. We want to support activities which benefit the people of Northern Ireland or that help arts organisations in Northern Ireland carry out their work. All applications should fit within the objectives stated in the Council’s five-year plan and art form policies.
The Small Grants Programme is open to professional arts organisations and community organisations alike. Applications should be submitted online, with all necessary enclosures uploaded with your application. The Arts Council will aim to make a decision within two months of receiving an application. Please note, you should apply for funding at least two months before the start of your event (projects which start within two months of the application date will not be accepted).
Guidance notes for this programme and details of how to apply can be found here.
