As we near the end of 2013, it is time to start considering funding for your event, festival or tour in the years ahead. The Arts Council has a number of schemes that require an application this month.

The purpose of the Local Authority Grant is to support the ongoing programme and strategic actions of the local authority arts services in developing the arts locally. This funding scheme is open to local authority arts services only. It would be worth your while consulting with your local authority to ensure they are actively applying for this funding. The deadline for those applications is 5.30pm, Thursday, November 7th, 2013. Another is the Touring and dissemination – Advance Planning funding, which is now taking submissions for 2015. Deadline for that is November 14th, 2013.
