2021 Decade of Centenaries Programme: Leitrim County Council Grant Scheme

2021 Decade of Centenaries Programme: Leitrim County Council Grant Scheme

'Local Legacies 1921/2021’

Part A: Community Strand

Part B: Artistic and Creative Strand

 

Applications are being invited in relation to the above two Funding Calls.  The aim of this commemorative funding is to ensure that proposed events for County Leitrim are commemorated in a respectful, measured and inclusive manner.  The terms of the scheme are based on guidelines issued by the Expert Advisory Group on Centenary Commemorations.

The Fund is being administered by Leitrim County Council and the aim is to support the development of community-led commemorative initiatives in 2021, in remembrance of this complex and challenging period in our history and will also allow for advance planning of commemorative initiatives for 2022. 

There are two separate and distinct funding schemes available:

·       Funding for local community groups registered with Leitrim County Council’s Public Participation Network (PPN) and local cultural and sporting institutions throughout County Leitrim to play their part by developing an event/project to mark the centenary.

·       Funding to support artists and creatives in delivering community-led commemorative initiatives.  Artists and Creatives are invited to submit a funding application which will interpret historical events and provide a platform to encourage reflection and consideration of the issues, both past and present.

Further information including guidance notes and application forms on both funding schemes are available below.

Closing date for applications is 4pm Wednesday 10th March 2021.
