Equality Data and Arts Council Awards 2021
In the Arts Council’s Equality, Human Rights and Diversity Policy, we commit to collecting more information about artists that apply for and receive funding, and reporting on this data on an annual basis. We do this to provide a clear picture of gaps we are not addressing and to inform new actions to address those gaps.
On 9 June 2022 we published a report covering data collected during the 2021 calendar year. This report provides details of all those who applied for and received funding across our individual awards. It also looks at applicants to specialist schemes operated on our behalf by third parties: the Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create and Arts & Disability Connect managed by Arts and Disability Ireland.
