Do you have a good idea for a youth arts project in your youth group but need funding to work with an artist?

This long running scheme managed by NYCI on behalf of the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs has been successfully bringing together artists and youth workers over the past number of years.

There are two strands to the artist and youth work residency scheme:

  • Youth Arts Explorer grants of up to €1,500 for those starting out and 
  • Artist and Youth Work Residency grants of up to €5,000 for those with a little more experience.

We're here to support you!

Find out everything you need to know about the grants and how to apply. If you have any questions, make sure to register for one of our FAQs sessions on March 7th or March 8th or get in touch. We'd be delighted to hear from you.

All the best,

P.S. To make it as easy as possible for you to apply we have created lots of great resources including guidelines, templates and even interviews with past awardees.

P.P.S. you may also be interested in the free training Developing Funding Applications for Youth Arts Projects which is taking place on Mar 20th.
The National Youth Arts Programme is a strategic partnership between NYCI, The Arts Council and the Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
