Applications open for Arts Awards
The Arts Awards is our annual funding scheme, which aims to support the ongoing development of the arts in the county. Both Arts Awards and Professional Development Awards are available.
The Arts Awards are suitable for individuals or organisations including festivals, communities, schools and educational organisations to support an arts event or project.
The Professional Development Award is most suited to professional artists. The Professional Development Award provides funding to individual professional artists based in Cavan who earn a proportion or all of their annual income through their artistic practice.
Available funding is modest and applicants are encouraged to be mindful of this before preparing an application.
