Applying for Arts Grants and Awards with Kildare County Council Arts Service

Kildare Arts Service will host a number of information sessions on applying for grants with Kildare County Council. This session is particularly suited to people who have never been successful in receiving a grant from Kildare County Council. It will also be of interest to individuals or groups applying to other funding bodies as a lot of the grant application advice can be applied to any application form, not just Kildare County Council forms.

Content of the session will include:

  • Listing of available grants
  • Application criteria
  • The application process
  • How grants are assessed
  • Tips on writing a successful application
  • Q and A

The session is aimed at any individual artist, arts collective or community group who has applied or is intending to apply for a grant from Kildare Arts Service. 

The closing date for Arts Grants and Awards in 2017 is Monday 20th March at 12 noon.

To assist as many applicants attend as possible we will be running the session in a number of locations in February and early March.  You only need to attend ONE session, please choose your session based on the time / date / location that suit you the best.
