Funding | Galway County Council Artist in Schools Scheme 2018

Application deadline: 30 November, 4pm

The Artist in Schools Scheme is about to commence its 2018 programme. This scheme is run by Galway County Council’s Arts Office and is open to all primary schools in Galway County Council’s administrative area. Its aim is to offer children the opportunity to work with a professional artist on a once-off project in visual arts, dance, literature, drama, music, photography, film, etc.

While it is not possible to offer this scheme to every school that applies, the programme seeks to encourage, in so far as possible, an art-form and geographic spread and also to award the scheme to previously unsuccessful applicants.

Please note that successful applicants in 2017 are automatically ineligible for this round of funding.
