The aim of the overall National Lottery Support for Individual Artists Programme (NLSIAP) is to support artists across all disciplines to create work and develop their practice. Broadly, awards can be for specific projects, specialised research, or personal artistic development.
While artists may apply to more than one scheme, only one grant will be awarded in any one funding round. Separate application forms must be submitted for each scheme and the projects within each application must be significantly different.
For details of how to apply, eligibility and how much funding you can request under each scheme, please check the individual guidance notes on the Arts Council web site at Funding for Individuals | Arts Council NI (artscouncil-ni.org)
