Offaly Creative Ireland Grant Scheme 2024

We are currently inviting community groups to apply for funding to work with an artist to explore aspects of Offaly’s heritage. Please see the grant information document attached and application form. If you would like to discuss a potential project do get in touch. This funding programme has led to a range of wonderful, engaging projects in previous years and we look forward to working with groups and artists this year.

Offaly County Council, with financial support from Creative Ireland, seeks to award grants to communities and artists working together to explore and present aspects of Offaly’s heritage through varying art forms.  These grants will range from incubator grants to project delivery grants.  Projects may be phased over a number of years exploring concepts and developing relationships between the artist and community in year one and the building on this in future years.

Heritage includes the following – monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects including archives, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, geology, heritage gardens and parks, inland waterways, folklore and local history.

Art can include any creative or interpretative expression (whether traditional or contemporary) in whatever art form, including; visual arts, theatre, literature, music, dance, opera, film, circus and architecture, and includes any medium within those art forms.
