Applications are open for our Summer Community Diversionary Festival Funding Programme. Our programme provides funding for festival or positive cultural expressions connected to 11 July or 8 August activities in Belfast. We are holding information sessions on the funding programme in March.
Summer Community Diversionary Funding Programme aims
This programme will support local organisations to:
- engage with issues relating to positive cultural expression in the lead up to and around 11 July and 8 August through the provision of summer community diversionary festival activity
- divert young people at risk of becoming involved in at risk behaviour in the lead up to and over the two periods
- deliver summer community diversionary festival activities at specific locations where there are negative issues associated with bonfires
This programme will provide funding for festival activity that is developed and led by a community organisation.
