New Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme Closing Dates announced

The closing date for tours starting from July to December 2019 and for Advance Planning 2020 will be January 10, 2019.


Application forms will be available through online services from mid-December 2018.


As with previous rounds of the scheme we have agreed with our colleagues in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland to jointly support north / south tours (subject to budgetary availability). This means that applications from NI and RoI can include dates in both jurisdictions.


This is an incentive to companies and venues to work together in both jurisdictions to enable excellent work to be seen on the whole island.


Unsuccessful applicants to Strategic/Venues/Partnership Funding may apply to the Touring Scheme Round 2 2019.


The Advance Planning scheme is open to all individuals and organisations who wish to tour productions in 2020 (apart from organisations which are in receipt of multi-annual strategic funding agreements).


Since its introduction in 2010 the Touring schemes have been based on the principle of collaboration between those who produce and those who present work to audiences.


For details on the scheme, please contact Val Ballance or Regina O'Shea. If you have questions specifically related to art forms, then email the relevant team. All contact details are on the Arts Council's website Contacts page.
