Funding of €160,000 to over 135 arts organisations and individual artists has been announced under Cork County Council’s annual Arts Grant Scheme.  This year’s allocations will support the work of many of the county’s voluntary arts groups including Pipe and Brass Bands, Choirs, Traditional Music and Creative Writing groups. 

Allocations to 34 arts festivals will account for the largest share of funding provided by the Council in 2018 at nearly 43% of the overall grant allocation.  The economic impact of Arts Festivals supported by Cork County Council in 2017 was worth €3.23M to the local economy

In welcoming the funding, Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Declan Hurley noted the importance of supporting arts activity at community level considering so much activity is generated by the work of voluntary arts organizations, “Voluntary efforts plays a huge role in our county’s arts scene, providing opportunities for young people to gain confidence through performance in music and drama and for older members of society to engage in beneficial social activity through the arts.”  

Cork County Council Chief Executive Tim Lucey noted the wide range of arts organisations to receive support through the scheme, “There is a fantastic variety of work undertaken to promote access to, and participation in, the arts which in terms of the outturn for 2017 showed participation levels approaching 19,000 people and attendance at arts events of almost 170,000.”

Mayor Hurley went on to say, “I wish all the groups and individuals every success in the events and activities which they have planned.  Council funding will go some way to ensuring that our communities continue to have access to participating in a wide range of art forms.”
