Cultural Multi-Annual Grants 

The two-year funding tiers are due to be open in autumn 2021.

Our Cultural Multi-Annual Grants scheme includes two funding strands:

  • festivals and events organisations with an audience of more than 10,000
  • arts and heritage organisations with a year-round programme of activity

There are two tiers of funding available under each of these two strands – a two-year grant and a four-year grant. Cultural activity is defined widely in keeping with our Cultural Strategy for Belfast 2020 – 2030, A City Imagining. It can include arts, heritage, architecture, sport, food, language, customs, traditions and ideas. The investment model is one of the key outputs of this strategy. It has replaced our previous core multi-annual funding for arts and heritage.
