International Programme for Organisations – Arts Council of Northern Ireland

Professional Arts Abroad

As part of its strategy to enhance the international profile and reputation of the arts of Northern Ireland, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland offers awards for arts organisations which have experience in or proven potential for exhibition, performance or other artistic profiling in the international arena, to present their work outside the United Kingdom and Ireland. Tours which involve new work and existing work created by NI artists will be prioritised.
