From visual art and literature, to music, dance, theatre and more, we aim to fund great art that everyone can reach and enjoy.
We are the main support for artists and arts organisations, offering a broad range of funding opportunities through our Exchequer and National Lottery funds.
The Arts Council of Northern Ireland has a fixed source of public funding to allocate each year. We often receive more successful, eligible applications than we have the resources to fund.
A range of organisations currently offer funding to artists, arts organisations, arts consortium organisations, artist-led/partnership-led collaborative projects.Other Funders
