Arts Council announces £84,000 National Lottery funding to support 12 exceptional artists.
Twelve exceptional artists from Northern Ireland have been announced as the latest recipients of the Arts Council’s Artist Career Enhancement Scheme (ACES) and are set to benefit from £84,000 funding. ACES is a professional development programme supported by The National Lottery which provides funding awards to Northern Ireland’s most talented emerging and mid-career artists, helping them to create new work and develop their professional, artistic careers.
Awards under the Artists Career Enhancement Scheme are made annually to artists and are among the most prestigious awards offered by the Arts Council. This year’s awardees include three visual artists, four musicians, two drama awardees, two writers and one dancer.
