Arts Council Lottery Project Funding Programme – closing 16 May

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland has opened its Lottery Project Funding programme (27th April), offering grants of between £10,001 – £50,000 to assist organisations to deliver arts projects which contribute to the growth of arts in the community for new and existing audiences and which reflect the diversity of Northern Ireland’s society and culture. The programme aims to support activities which benefit the people of Northern Ireland or that help arts organisations in Northern Ireland carry out their work. In addition, the Arts Council wishes to support programmes which:

  • Encourage the involvement of under-represented groups including those from black and ethnic minority (BAME) communities;
  • Encourage the involvement of children and young people, older people, or people with disabilities with organisations and artists of the very highest professional standards across the disciplines;
  • Promote innovative, original work by Northern Ireland artists, especially in drama and dance, which tours outside the company’s administrative base; and Advance collaborative audience development projects
