Applying for Grants - Information sessions

Kildare Arts Service will host a number of information sessions on applying for grants with Kildare County Council. This session is particularly suited to people who have never been successful in receiving a grant from Kildare County Council. It will also be of interest to individuals or groups applying to other funding bodies as a lot of the grant application advice can be applied to any application form, not just Kildare County Council forms.


Content of the session will include:

Listing of available grants

Application criteria

The application process

How grants are assessed

Tips on writing a successful application

Q and A


The session is aimed at any individual artist, arts collective or community group who has applied or is intending to apply for a grant from Kildare Arts Service. 

The closing date for Arts Grants and Awards in 2018 is Tuesday 20th March at 12 noon.

To assist as many applicants attend as possible we will be running the session in a number of locations in February.  You only need to attend ONE session, please choose your session based on the time / date / location that suit you the best.

These sessions are FREE but tickets are limited. All bookings are done through eventbrite. To book please register for your preferred date and location at the relevant link below.
