Culture Ireland and FACEBOOK Ireland announces details of Ireland Performs

The COVID-19 crisis has rapidly changed how artists present their work and reach audiences.  As artists have largely turned to online presentation, FACEBOOK Ireland with Culture Ireland, Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht have come together to support and present live presentations by Irish artists (in English or Irish) to ensure that the arts continue to be enjoyed online – #IrelandPerforms.

The scheme was announced today (Friday 3 April) by Josepha Madigan, T.D., Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

This grant scheme to support professional artists and enable the live presentation of their work on online platforms is being made available from 3 April for an initial period of 4 weeks. Funding of €100,000 is being made available on a match funded basis by FACEBOOK Ireland and Culture Ireland, a division of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. All successful artists will be awarded €1,000. The scheme will be managed by Culture Ireland in conjunction with First Music Contact and Poetry Ireland in association with RTÉ.

Full details of the scheme are available here and an application form is available here

Application forms should be forwarded to ei.vog.dnalerierutluc@sesacwohs

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and while the scheme is open to all, special consideration will be given to artists whose work was scheduled for public presentation internationally or in Ireland and has been cancelled owing to the crisis.

Artists will be streamed through FACEBOOK Live and other social media platforms using the hashtag #IrelandPerforms and distributed as widely as possible through Instagram and Facebook Pages, including those of Culture Ireland, Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, First Music Contact and Poetry Ireland.
