Arts Act Grants


The Arts Act permits a local authority to assist with money, or in kind, events or activities which would, in the opinion of the local authority: stimulate public interest in the arts, promote knowledge, appreciation and practice of the arts or improve the standards of the arts within its functional area.

In this Act ‘the arts’ means any creative or interpretative expression (whether traditional or contemporary) in whatever form, and includes, in particular, visual arts, theatre, literature, music, dance, opera, film, circus and architecture, and includes any medium when used for those purposes.

Applications deadline has now passed. To receive a sample copy of 2022 Guidelines and Application form please email mayoarts@mayococo.ie
