The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, has announced funding of more than €626,000 for the worldwide promotion of Irish arts through Culture Ireland’s grant programme, according to a statement published on Gov.ie.
Some 91 projects that cover architecture, dance, film, literature, music, opera, theatre and visual arts will reach projected audiences of more than 1.1 million in 27 countries through this support, according to the statement published on Gov.ie.
Statement By Minister Martin
The statement published on Gov.ie included one from Minister Martin, in which she said, “It gives me great pleasure to announce this round of Culture Ireland’s funding, enabling Irish artists to reach the global audiences they deserve. From baroque music in Croatia to rock music in Germany, and from contemporary opera in London to important art fairs in Seoul and New York, I am struck by the breadth of Irish artists and their work being supported across multiple art forms. This international presentation is not just a testament to the excellent reputation for Irish culture through these opportunities, but also a hugely practical element in the renewal and recovery of the Irish cultural sector.”
