The Arts Council places high priority on the work it does in developing the arts within the community. We feel strongly that the development of the arts will help improve the quality of life for the local community and increase development of life skills for those participants.

To assist with the development of the arts, the Arts Council's main focus is to support and encourage everyone involved in the arts to develop and expand their activities by providing as much assistance as possible, whether it be advisory or financial.

To apply for funding from the Arts Council please fill in the appropriate form from the document links below and return it to the address stated on the form. If you are struggling to decide which type of funding to apply for, please contact the office. Why not also take a look at our Advice and Guidance page for further information. Following completion of the activity being funded, an End of Project Monitoring Report must also be completed. This should be sent to the same address.

You can complete this once your event, activity or product that you were awarded for is over. The forms help us to gage participation and engagement in the arts on and off Island and the information provided is used in our Engagement Reports.

The Arts Council's logo should be used in all acknowledgements in publications where possible. When using the logo the Arts Council's brand guidelines must be adhered to at all times. You can find these on our Brand Guidelines and Logos page.
