The Arts Council of Northern Ireland, in partnership with Arts & Business, is currently working with the newly-established Charity Commission for Northern Ireland to roll out a series of information seminars designed specifically for arts organisations in February and March of next year. (Further details of these events will follow in due course.)
Recently the Charity Commission presented to arts sector umbrella and support agencies at MacNeice House, and the presentations delivered can be accessed via the links below. (You will need Microsoft Powerpoint to access these files).
The presentations provide an overview of the changes that will happen, the implications for organisations and details of the Commission’s Public Benefit Test.
If you represent an arts organisation and would like further information on how this development might affect your organisation, please contact in the first instance Kate Keys, Sector Business Development Manager at the Arts Council on 028 9038 5232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also access regular updates from the Charity Commission on www.charitycommissionni.org.uk and contact details for the Secretariat are contained within the presentation.
