Baltinglass Launches Survey In Hopes of Securing A €450,000 Arts Council Grant.

Residents in Baltinglass are being asked for their views about the future of arts in the town.

Residents in Baltinglass are being asked for their views about the future of the town. Council officials are currently preparing an application to the Arts Council’s ‘Creative Places’ scheme, which could result in funding worth €450,000 for the county over a three year period. The town has been identified as an area around which the application will be based, with initial research currently underway. The scheme is an opportunity for places which had not benefitted from sustained arts investment in the past to build local arts programmes. This follows the launch of the Creative Places pilot in Tuam in 2020, and the expansion of the programme to Athy (Kildare), Bagenalstown (Carlow), Darndale, (North Dublin), Edenderry (Offaly) and the West Cork Islands for three year programmes, while Shannon (Clare), Iveragh Peninsula (Kerry) and Mac Uilliam (Tallaght). The deadline for responses is Sunday the 6th of March.
