Partial pre-payment of Artists’ grants announced by Culture Ireland

In response to significant inflation and in an effort to make Culture Ireland’s funding streams more accessible for Irish artists and arts organisations, Culture Ireland will now provide partial prepayment of grants up to a maximum of 30% in advance, subject to resources being available. 

It is hoped that this initiative will provide assistance in realising major artistic projects and allow artists to focus on availing of opportunities to present their work internationally. This prepayment will be subject to the following conditions:

• Grantees must apply in writing to seek the prefunding and provide a brief rationale as to why prefunding is required;

• Grantees must confirm that to the best of the their knowledge the event for which the grant applies is going ahead;

• Pre-funding will only be available to grantees who have fully complied with the terms and conditions of any previous Culture Ireland funding;

• Pre-funding will only be available within 6 months preceding the event;

• Pre-funding will not be available to grantees who are not in fully compliance with the t&cs for previous grants;

•  If the event does not proceed and pre-funding has been made available this may become repayable to Culture Ireland or may be deducted from future grants.
