Cultural funding

Support for Artist Studios and Maker Spaces

This pilot programme is part of the city’s on-going commitment both to cultural recovery in the context of the pandemic and our on-going A City Imagining cultural investment programme for Belfast.

Grants of up to £15,000 are available if you run a space where groups of artists and makers come together to work and develop their practice. A small number of larger grants may be considered on the basis of need and scale. 

Email culture@belfastcity.gov.uk for guidance notes and application form. An information session will take place on Friday 20 May at 2pm and you can request an advice meeting with an officer. 

The closing date is 12 noon on 31 May 2022. 

This will be a pilot rolling programme with deadlines to be set according to demand and availability of resources.

Micro Grant Programme

In addition we are operating a micro grant programme for artist-led groups and their members with a focus on studio, career, and practice development. 

Please email culture@belfastcity.gov.uk to request guidance notes and application form for this programme which will open from 16 May. This will be a pilot rolling programme with deadlines to be set according to demand and availability of resources.
