Funding of £1.5 million will be available to support individuals and organisations in the Arts Sector in response to Covid-19. The Creative Support Fund will be administered by the Arts Council NI allowing small and medium sized organisations to be able to apply for maximum funding of £25,000 to help them develop new projects or programmes or re-arrange events which have had to be cancelled during the Covid-19 period. To find out more about the criteria and to apply visit www.artscouncil-ni.org
The Creative Support Fund will reopen on 31 July with a £4m support package for the arts, creative industries and cultural sector (on top of the initial package launched 27 April that was heavily oversubscribed). The fund for individuals will open from 31 July until 17 August and the awards will range from £1,000 to £5,000. The fund for organisations will reopen for small and medium sized organisations in August, with a maximum award available of £25,000. Priority will be given to those who have been unable to access other forms of financial support from Government or other sources.
