Arts Council welcomes Minister’s funding announcement

Thursday 19th November 2015 at 2pm 0 Comments

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland welcomes the Minister’s announcement that she  has successfully secured additional funding resources for the arts in the November monitoring round.


The Department for Culture, Arts and Leisure has been able to confirm that £620,000 will be allocated to the Arts Council to reinstate grants to the 32 organisations affected by earlier in-year cuts.

We appreciated greatly the opportunity to meet with the Minister in October when we conveyed the Arts Council's and the sector’s deep concerns at the impact of the in-year reductions. There will be a sense of relief shared by those affected by today’s announcement.

The Arts Council will, as ever, continue to support the Minster in her efforts to bring  public funding for the arts to the level at which they should be, to achieve the full potential of the arts in the lives of all the people.
