Business to Arts have recently announced a match funding CSR programme for businesses with our Artist-in-Residence (AR) Programme under the Creative Ireland Programme’s National Creativity Fund.


During the year-long funding pilot, we are planning to establish 3 Artist-in-Residence (AR) Programmes in regional areas, working with businesses and local community organisations to promote staff engagement, inclusive creative working methods, etc.


The AR Programme will cover a broad spectrum of activity and opportunities for artists and companies. Host companies will offer artists a working environment or a structure for engagement with their organisation’s CSR Programme and a selected local community organisation.

Up to €7,500 will be provided for the creation (or enhancement) of CSR activity. Businesses are asked to match fund this amount, and to submit an Expression of Interest to participate in the programme.

More information is available on our website is here.

The closing date for expressions of interest is Friday, 15th February 2019.
