Posted by Ards Arts Centre|01 November 2017| in Press



The Arts Service of Ards and North Down Borough Council have opened their Arts Project Funding for the final time in the 2017/18 financial year. The Arts Project Fund is available to arts, community and special interest groups throughout the Ards and North Down Borough area who wish to enhance existing, and undertake new community arts activities. A maximum grant of £1,000 is available.

If you are a community group, special interest group or charitable organisation don’t miss out on this opportunity to access funding for arts-related activities and projects. The Arts Service are keen to support groups and charitable organisations who wish to undertake creative projects and activities. So, whether you would like to learn the art of juggling, photography or salsa, or whether you have a community sculpture or mural in mind, or maybe your group could create a film or a theatre performance -  please check out the funding criteria and see how it could benefit your group.

This round of funding is suitable for projects taking place from January 2018 - March 2018 and the deadline for applications is Friday 24 November at 12.00pm.


An information evening designed to assist groups wishing to apply for an arts project grant will take place on Tuesday 14 November at 6pm at Ards Arts Centre. Pre-booking is ESSENTIAL.

Application forms can be downloaded from or or pick up a hard copy at Ards Arts Centre, Conway Square, Newtownards.
