The fund, which opened for applications on Thursday 17 December, is aimed at supporting individuals working in the creative economy in Northern Ireland – including freelance musicians and DJs.

Priority for funding will be given to those who have been unable to access other forms of financial support from Government or other sources and who have not received funding from the Arts Council of NI’s Artists Emergency Programme (AEP) or Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme 1. However individuals who have previously received Arts Council of NI funding will still be able to apply.

The deadline for applications is 4:00 pm on Thursday 7 January 2021, and the organisers will be doing their best to make their final decisions in February 2021.

Find out more about eligibility criteria, and how to apply for the fund, on Arts Council NI’s website.
