Arts Council NI – Support for the Individual Artist Programme (SIAP)

Grants are available to artists of all disciplines who have made a contribution to artistic activities in NI for a minimum period of one year within the last five years. In a limited number of cases, individual technical staff/administrators of professional artistic companies may also be eligible. Grants can cover project assistance, travel grants and residencies.

Due to COVID-19, applications are also welcomed from artists who are currently in receipt of an existing SIAP grant. However, individuals are unable to hold two awards concurrently. Should currently funded artists wish to submit an application, they must ensure that the project for which they apply does not start until their current project is completed. All other projects are to be completed by 31 August 2021. All applications to the programme below must be for projects that will take place between 14 September 2020 and 31 August 2021.

When planning your project please give careful consideration to the feasibility, timing and presentation of your project given restrictions due to Covid-19. Please consult the programme guidance notes found here before making an application. All applications must be completed online.

Deadline: 24 July 2020 at 4pm
Decisions will be made by Monday 14th September 2020
