Arts Council of Northern Island Programme

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is supporting organisations to reopen their creative spaces in a safe manner through the Health and Safety Capital Programme. Funding is available to enable organisations to purchase equipment and/or carry out minor works to their premises that will address any health and safety issues that have been created due to Covid-19. Organisations do not need to be primarily an arts organisation, however, the purpose of the requested equipment or minor works must be clearly focused on the arts. Applications close at 12pm on Friday 5 November 2021. Visit the website for more information.

For information on 8,000 sources of funding giving a total of £8 billion, take a look at Funds Online.
