Annual Funding Survey

All organisations in receipt of Annual Funding Programme (AFP) funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland are required to complete an annual survey to report activities delivered during the Financial Year 2019/20.

The Annual Funding Survey (AFS) is to be completed, as a condition of grant, by all organisations in receipt of Annual Funding Programme (AFP) funding.

There are no changes to the structure of this year’s survey but there will be for next year.  The revised 2020/21 survey will be forwarded in April to allow you to update your internal data collection systems.

Completed survey must be returned to gstevenson@artscouncil-ni.org by Friday 29th May, 2020.

Findings from the 2018/19 Financial Year can be found here in dashboard format, including:

  • Finance, activity, employment and location data by artform and organisation size.
  • The geographic distribution of activity by Local Government District and Multiple Deprivation.
  • Three year trends based on a constant sample of organisations.

A copy of this year’s guidance notes can be found here.
