Leitrim Local Live Performance Scheme - Round 4
In March 2021, the Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media announced a suite of measures to support the commercial live performance sector to assist producers, promoters and venues to provide support for people in the industry during Covid-19. An element of this was an allocation to local authorities to support commercial live performance locally. The minister recently announced a fourth strand of the scheme to support employment opportunities for artists, performers and crew to help underpin the recovery of the live performance sector. The funding can be used to support employment and wellbeing in the commercial arts and culture sectors through the provision of live performances from 1st July to 31st October 2022.
Leitrim County Council is now accepting applications for events from events orgnaisers, arts venues and arts organisations. Leitrim County Council is also seeking tenders from suitably qualified indiviudals or companies to manage Round 4 of the programme.
