The Artist Studios Organisational Grants are part of Belfast City Council’s on-going commitment to cultural recovery and the on-going A City Imagining cultural investment programme for Belfast. These awards are aimed at those organisations which have struggled to secure funding from Belfast City Council through existing programmes and need some assistance to help stabilise and develop.

Organisations or groups operating artist studios can apply for up to ÂŁ10,000 to use towards specified developmental needs within a 12-month period. Exceptional cases can be made for the award of grants up to ÂŁ20,000 by organisations that accommodate at least 25 active members, and which meet additional eligibility criteria and supply a suitable business case.
