The Arts Council has recently launched a new 10-year strategy, Making Great Art Work: Leading the Development of the Arts in Ireland. A programme of public engagement is currently underway to consider the new strategy with upcoming forums in Dublin (10 and 11 November), Limerick (12 November) and Galway (24 November).

These forums will invite conversation about what practitioners find encouraging and motivating about the strategy, what challenges they foresee, and what specific actions should be taken in the first three year plan (2017-2019).

There are a limited number of places still available in some venues. If you’d like to attend please email

Alternatively, you may submit a response to the strategy online here. This response channel is open until 27 November 2015.

In January, a report will be made available of the combined responses to the strategy.
