All applications to the programme below must be for projects that will take place between 14 September 2020 and 31 August 2021.

What can you apply for?

  • Project assistance
  • Travel grants

When planning your project please give careful consideration to the feasibility, timing and presentation of your project given restrictions due to Covid-19.

Who can apply?

Artists of all disciplines and in all types of working practice, who

(a) have made a contribution to artistic activities in Northern Ireland for a minimum period of one year within the last five years.

In a limited number of cases, individual technical staff/administrators of professional artistic companies may also be eligible.

Due to the exceptional circumstances this year, applications are welcomed from artists who are currently in receipt of Arts Council’s support through its existing Support for Individual Artists Programme.

Please note however, that individuals are unable to hold two awards concurrently. Should currently funded SIAP individual artists wish to submit an application, you must ensure that the project for which you apply does not start until your current project is completed, eg if your current award is due to complete on 31 October 2020, your proposed project must start later, 1 November 2020. Please note that all projects are to complete by 31 August 2021. Projects may also complete before 31 August 2021.

Who cannot apply?

Applicants who have broken the conditions of any previous award within the previous 4 years (taken from the date of the letter of offer) and applicants who remain in breach of any previous letters of offer.
