Creative call to animate Limerick

248

LIMERICK City and County Council is inviting expressions of interest from local community groups, companies, creatives and producers for animations and activities, to take place this July and August.

As part of the Guiding Limerick Through Covid-19 plans, a fund has been allocated to specifically support costs associated with performer, facilitator, artist and event/ production fees. Proposals should provide family-friendly experiences in open-air public spaces and urban areas.

As this is a limited fund and applications will be assessed on a first come first served basis, the Council will not be in a position to fund all applications received. The scheme will remain open until the fund has been allocated.

Grants will be awarded to proposals that clearly demonstrate compliance with National Covid-19 Guidelines, and support the principles of the Guiding Limerick Through Covid-19 document.

“The arts and culture sector, like many, was dealt a huge blow with the restrictions imposed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. During that time, the value of the sector was immeasurable as it found new ways to connect with audiences and help in sustaining people’s wellbeing,” said Fiona McCormack from Tourism, Culture and Arts with Limerick City and County Council.

“Now as we continue to emerge from the lockdown, Limerick City and County Council is giving individuals and groups an opportunity to help animate Limerick’s public and open spaces throughout the summer.”
