Wicklow County Arts Office established its funding schemes to support artists, festivals, communities, arts participation and art form development. In 2024, applications will be accepted under three schemes: Artist Award, Artist & Community Collaboration and the Arts Festival Award.

The primary objective of the Artist & Community Collaboration Award Scheme is to facilitate an artist and community partnership in any artistic discipline or genre, aimed at creating and delivering a high-quality project or programme that nurtures the creative growth of both the artist and the community. Professional artists and community groups are invited to apply for this award scheme.

Deadline for applications
The deadline for all three awards is Friday 16 February 2024, 4pm.

How to apply
The Guidelines for all three awards, application forms and the budget template are available here.

Application Support Service
For the first time, Wicklow County Arts Office is offering a new application support service from 10 January to 9 February 2024. This service offers artists, communities, and festivals the opportunity to engage in a 30-minute consultation, which will enable participants to pose questions and seek advice from a member of the Arts Office team. To avail of this opportunity, email wao@wicklowcoco.ie to schedule a suitable date and time.

Funding Clinics
Two Funding Clinics will take place in early 2024 to support artists, communities, and festivals planning to apply for Arts Act Funding. For more information and to book a place, click here.
