Culture Ireland in Britain 2018 – Calls for Expressions of Interest

Deadline: Fri 26 May 2017 - 17:00

Culture Ireland will support a special focus of activity in Britain in 2018.

Culture Ireland will present a vibrant, contemporary and high quality programme including a range of events across artistic disciplines in high-profile venues, institutions and festivals in Britain and build on Ireland's special history and relationship with its nearest neighbour.

Following the successes of previous programme strands (Imagining Ireland in 2011, Culture Connects across the EU in 2013, I Am Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme), this new initiative will create new opportunities for artists and companies across artforms to perform across Britain as well as develop their networks of contacts.

Culture Ireland invites proposals from artists and presenters interested in participating in this special programme – including, from companies who already have outline plans for work to be presented in Britain during 2018.

Proposals for tours to multiple locations are welcomed.

Outline projects are requested to be submitted by Friday 26 May 2017 and further proposals may be considered on a rolling basis at a later stage, if funding permits.

Applications may be made by Irish artists and companies or by international presenters, and should include as much budget information as possible, including supplementary material if needed.
