We are delighted to announce a CFCP Artistic Funding Grant to support the creation and development of artistic projects by migrant and culturally diverse artists in Ireland. This grant is aimed at migrant and culturally diverse artists of all disciplines who are resident in Ireland and who do not yet qualify for Arts Council funding or Local Arts Office awards.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage migrant and culturally diverse artists to develop and showcase their work. The projects can take the form of a performance, exhibition, concert, happening, reading, workshop or projection. Other forms are welcome but will be subject to acceptance by the awarding panel. Participatory projects as well as projects taking place in unusual places and contexts are especially welcome.

CFCP will select 3 to 5 artistic projects per year who will receive a cash grant of up to €2,000, five sessions of one-to-one mentoring, and a free place in a grant application workshop organised by the Centre for Creative Practices.

Each supported project must to be documented during its development and publicly showcased. The documentation will be published on CFCP’s website.



The application process involves four basic questions:

  1. What do you do?
  2. Who do you do it for?
  3. Why is this project worth doing?
  4. Show us the figures!

Artists can apply for new or existing projects. A maximum of 3 projects will be awarded with grants between €500 and €3,000.

Applications for this year’s grant will be accepted until 30 November 2020. For forms in large format, further information on application criteria and assessment, or to book an advisory session about the Scheme, please contact Monika Sapielak on 086-6084020 (with telephone link) or by email:
