Funding of €160,000 to over 135 arts organisations and individual artists has been announced under Cork County Council’s annual Arts Grant Scheme. This year’s allocations will support the work of many of the county’s voluntary arts groups including Pipe and Brass Bands, Choirs, Traditional Music and Creative Writing groups.
Allocations to 34 arts festivals will account for the largest share of funding provided by the Council in 2018 at nearly 43% of the overall grant allocation. The economic impact of Arts Festivals supported by Cork County Council in 2017 was worth €3.23M to the local economy.
