Visual Artists' Workspace Scheme 2018

Visual Artists Ireland, on behalf of the Arts Council, invites applications for grants of up to a maximum of €40,000 towards the running costs of visual artists’ workspaces. In keeping with the Arts Council’s policy document Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland - A New Approach (DOC, 0.18 MB), this scheme has the aim of assisting artists workspaces throughout the country to provide the best possible environment for working visual artists and, where feasible, to enable a level of subsidy for resident visual artists.

The scheme will award grants of up to €40,000 towards running costs such as light, heat, rent, administration and/or appropriate salary costs. Capital costs cannot be applied for through this scheme.
