Creative Ireland Grants 2018

Westmeath County Council recognises the best way to nurture the creative imagination is through active engagement with arts and culture. Promoting creativity provides us with a strategy for individual wellbeing, social cohesion and economic success.

Westmeath County Council launched a grant scheme to provide support to local and community, artistic and creative activities and projects that will encourage cultural participation throughout Westmeath. This fund is open to not-for-profit organizations, local community groups, arts, heritage and cultural groups, venues and societies.

The nominal amount of funding to any one project will typically be between €500 and €2,500 and applications received will be assessed based on an agreed selection criteria.
