Association of Local Authority Arts Officers

Mission / Aims

The Association is the representative body for Local Authority Arts Officers in Ireland. The ALAAO is a forum for discussion and a support for the development of its members’ work within their respective Local Authorities and other partners.

The members are uniquely placed to inform and actively shape arts policy development and programme delivery throughout Ireland.

Arts Officers seek to deliver equitable access by all of the many and diverse communities to excellent arts practice, as practitioners, participants and audience members. This applies to work in all disciplines, all contexts, voluntary, community and professional, nationally and locally.

There are 34 arts officers in City and County Local Authorities across Ireland.
