79 Galway Arts Groups Receive City Council Funding

May 2, 2014

The Galway arts community received a significant boost this week with the allocation of €375,000 in grants by Galway City Council. The Council approved grant allocations to 79 arts organisations in the city in order to support their activities in 2014. The grants were approved at Monday's Council meeting, following recommendations from the Council's Arts Funding Committee.

The arts grants are but one of a number of City Council measures supporting the arts in the city. They are strategically important in ensuring that support is provided across the full spectrum of art forms including visual arts, music and singing, theatre in all its forms, dance, creative writing, film, drama in the Irish language, the festivals and activities promoting multi-culturalism, diversity and social inclusion through the medium of art.

The funding also advances the achievement of the strategic objective of supporting and facilitating greater participation in the arts, and ensures that support is provided to new and emerging arts practitioners as well as more established groups.

The full list of grant allocations can be viewed below.
