Grants and funding
We're committed to supporting cultural, arts and heritage organisations and activities in the city. This includes a number of funding programmes.
Core multi-annual funding
Core multi-annual funding supports the core activities of arts and heritage organisations. It is open to Belfast-based organisations that have paid full-time staff (or a number of paid part-time staff that is equivalent to having at least one full-time member of staff) and ongoing annual costs.
Arts and heritage project grants
This grant is to support one-off arts and heritage projects that are new or support organisational development (or both).
Community Festivals Fund
The Community Festivals Fund is jointly funded by Belfast City Council and the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure to recognise the role that festivals can play in increasing social cohesion, celebrating cultural identity and strengthening community relations.
