Culture Ireland and Facebook Announce €100k for Online Performances
Culture Ireland and Facebook Ireland have announced a new funding programme called Ireland Performs to support artists who want to perform their work live on online platforms.
Priority will be given to artists whose work was scheduled for performance internationally, or in Ireland, and which has been cancelled or compromised as a result of the pandemic. Any Irish professional artist from any artform is eligible to apply.
Funding of €100,000 is being made available on a match-funded basis by Facebook Ireland and Culture Ireland. All successful applicants will be awarded €1,000. The scheme will be managed by Culture Ireland in conjunction with First Music Contact and Poetry Ireland in association with RTÉ.
Application forms should be forwarded to showcases [at] cultureireland.gov.ie
