Arts Grants, Awards & Bursaries Schemes 2020 Update

As many of you are aware we had to postpone the closing date for all our Arts Grants, Awards & Bursaries Schemes due to Covid19.

We are now happy to announce a new closing date of Thursday August 20th 2020 at 1pm for the following schemes;

  • Annual Arts Grants Scheme
  • Community Arts Award
  • Festival Grant Scheme
  • Professional Artists Development Fund
  • Tyrone Guthrie Centre Regional Bursary Award


& Thursday September 24th 2020 at 1pm for the

  • School Musical Instrument Purchase Scheme


Unfortunately there will be no Drama League of Ireland Bursary awards this year as the DLI Summer School has been cancelled due to Covid19.

Full details and application forms are available from artsoffice@meathcoco.ie or https://www.meath.ie/council/council-services/arts/meath-county-council-arts-funding

As many circumstances have changed, individuals or organisations who have already submitted an application are now required to email the Arts Office confirming the event, festival or project for which funding was sought is still going ahead in 2020. If we do not hear from you we will assume you no longer wish to pursue your application.

If however you have had to postpone your project or event in 2020 and now wish to apply for a revised project taking place in 2020 you should email the Arts Office at artsoffice@meathcoco.ie to advise us of same.

Please note you must make a new application for any revised project.

Gerardette Bailey, County Arts Officer
