Ireland joins Diaphonique for 2023

Culture Ireland is delighted to announce that, from 2023, Irish composers, musicians and venues can apply for funding through the Diaphonique scheme.

Created in 2010 and run by the Institut français du Royaume-Uni, the Diaphonique fund had, to date,supported projects in classical contemporary music, commissions, concerts, tours, residencies and educational projects between composers, musicians and venues between France and the United Kingdom.

With Culture Ireland joining as a partner, Diaphonique now welcomes applications from composers, musicians and venues from Ireland. This new collaboration will strengthen the collaborations between the Irish contemporary musical scenes and those of the partner countries, France and the United Kingdom.

The 13th call for projects opens online on Wednesday 15 March 2023, and applicants with projects initiated by structures based in Ireland can submit projects including as well Irish repertoire and Irish partners. Further details and the application process is available through the Diaphonique website here.


Culture Ireland will host an information Zoom on Tuesday 21st March 2023 at 12 noon (GMT) to provide
additional information about the scheme and the application process.
