Conditions applying to the award of a Grant

 

1. Grant Offer

In accepting a grant offer, the grantee accepts these conditions in full.

A grant may only be used for the specific costs approved by Culture Ireland as outlined in your grant offer and in a manner that maximises value for money.

 

2. Acknowledgement of Culture Ireland support

Grantees must acknowledge the support of Culture Ireland and the use of the appropriate Culture Ireland logo in all promotional material associated with an event including those of venue/festival/gallery, etc. Such recognition must match that given to corporate or other sponsors or donors for similar support. Compliance with this condition will be monitored and non-compliance will be regarded as a breach of these conditions. Culture Ireland reserves the right to request copies of all such promotional material publicising an event. Please click here to access logos and guidelines for their use.

 

3. Changes to Event

Culture Ireland’s agreement must be obtained in advance and in writing for any proposed alteration to the event (i.e. changes to date, venue, named artist or other significant element). Culture Ireland reserves the right to withdraw or revise its grant offer where significant changes to an event are involved.

 

4. Online Report Form

Grantees must complete a post-event review using an online Report Form when submitting a grant drawdown claim. Please click here to access the Report Form. Culture Ireland reserves the right to withhold payment of a grant where the Report Form has been inadequately or inappropriately completed.

 

5. Media Coverage

You are required to email links to any press coverage, reviews and any relevant photographs, video or audio material in relation to the event to Culture Ireland. These may be used to publicise events supported by Culture Ireland, subject to all necessary permissions being obtained, and assist Culture Ireland when considering subsequent applications from a grantee. Such information should be submitted before, during and after an event takes place to: info@cultureireland.gov.ie.

 

6. Child Protection Policy

Irish-based grantees are obliged to inform Culture Ireland if their event will involve any work or activity that will involve contact with children or relates to the provision of educational, research, training, cultural, recreational, leisure, social or physical activities to children.  If the answer to the foregoing is yes, grantees are required to complete this checklist, which seeks to establish if a grantee’s Child Protection Policy complies with national guidelines. This must be emailed to info@cultureireland.gov.ie. All grantees should ensure that local child protection policies are in place where relevant.

 

7. Freedom of information

Information provided to Culture Ireland may be disclosed in response to a request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2014. Every effort will be made to protect grantees confidentiality in line with the terms of the Act.

 

8. Publication of Grant Awards

Culture Ireland has a policy of publishing relevant details of grants awarded online including but not necessarily limited to the names of the grantee, the amount of the grant offered and a summary of the proposed event.

 

Drawdown of a grant is dependent on the above conditions being fully and satisfactorily completed.
