The Arts Council is currently reviewing the way we fund touring and the parameters of this award are set to change. We consider change to be an integral part of our role as the development agency for the arts in Ireland. Changes to our decision-making
and policy-making are informed by data provided by the sector.
What has changed for this round?
• We have aligned the objectives and priorities of this award more closely to the Arts Council strategy Making Great Art Work.
• We have standardised the mandatory supporting material required for all applicants – some exceptions remain, so please read this guidance carefully.
• We have added a new application artform area (MDA / Arts Participation / YPCE). Applicants with a particular focus on Arts Participation or YPCE should select this as their primary artform area.
• We have aligned our assessment and decision-making processes to follow Arts Council peer-panel procedure.
For details on the scheme including priorities, please refer to the 2024 Touring of Work Scheme – Advance Planning Guidelines for Applicants which will be available on this page from mid-December 2022.
We will be holding an online information clinic in mid-January 2023 in relation to the 2024 Touring of Work Scheme - Advance Planning. Further details will be published in our January 2023 newsletter and on our social media accounts.
