The Arts Council of Ireland launches new International Arts Policy

Arts Council of Ireland - An Chomhairle Ealaíon,
25 March 2022, Ireland

The Arts Council is pleased to announce the launch of the new International Arts Policy 2022 - 2025. With this policy, the Arts Council recognises the important role of international practice and relations in the development of the arts in Ireland. The document proposes a four year strategic framework aimed at supporting those who pursue such opportunities beyond national borders.

In practice, the International Arts Policy framework sets out to deliver a more effective alignment of supports aimed at the integration of national and international activities delivered by Irish-based artists and organisations. This policy acknowledges the reality that for many artists, work conducted in a local, national and international context is often part of a single eco-system and an integral part of a sustainable professional practice.
