New Scheme for Arts Grant Funding

The Minister for Culture and the Arts Council have announced almost €700,000 in funding for artists and arts organisations in Galway City and County. The new Arts Grant Funding Scheme comes under the Arts Council 10-year strategy ‘Making Great Art Work’ and will support a wide variety of arts including literature, music, theatre and drama, film and the visual arts. The Galway Music Residency was one of a number of recipients of this funding.
