Sorry, this scheme is closed. If you need help please contact us

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon are working together to encourage arts organisations and individuals to extend tours across the border.

Who can apply?

Applications are invited for proposals seeking funding in support of initiatives that are of high artistic quality and that generally have a strong audience focus. This scheme is designed to support the touring and dissemination of work in certain arts disciplines for tours starting between July 2017 and December 2017, and is open to applicants who are resident in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland. Tours may travel to both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.


How to apply?

Please note that applications can only be made through the Arts Council/An Comhairle Ealaíon website. If you are an individual based in Northern Ireland you will need to contact the Arts Council in Dublin to register: email or  telephone 00 353 1 6180260.

Guidance Notes

The Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme is open to applications from organisations and individuals. Applications which demonstrate collaboration / partnership between networks, consortia or other collective groupings of presenters are encouraged, particularly where these indicate a high degree of engagement with audiences and collaboration with the producing entity or artists.

Applicants in receipt of other Arts Council funding are eligible to apply, provided it is clear that the touring or dissemination activity for which funding is sought is additional to those activities for which Arts Council funding has already been offered.

Tours must begin between July 2017 and December 2017.
