Arts Council Recruit New Festival & Events Manager
18 Aug 2004 :

The Arts Council of Ireland have announced that Una McCarthy has been appointed the new Arts Programme Manager, Festivals and Events. Una will assume her post in September and will be the primary point of contact between the Council and over 130 arts festivals and events, including managing all aspects of funding relationships.

In 2004, the Council committed almost €5.2m in funding to arts festivals and events, most of it in annual revenue funding. This position is one of four programme managers reporting to the Arts Programme Director, John O’Kane, working within a team of staff and specialists in contributing advice and knowledge to the Council on the funding needs and supports required to sustain and develop arts festivals in Ireland.

From Charleville, County Cork, Una joins the Arts Council from Cork Institute of Technology where, as Arts Officer, she repositioned their annual festival into an event that celebrates the interface between art and science. Formerly, she was Director of Sligo’s Model Arts and Niland Gallery, where her work included the coordination of three annual festivals - Scriobh (literary festival) - and two festivals of contemporary and Baroque music. From 1991 to 1996, she was Director of the Old Museum Arts Centre in Belfast, where she initiated their festival of new Irish works. Una also spent some time in Bristol, working as Bristol City Council Arts Officer from 1987 to 1991 and later, in the mid-nineties, as Deputy Director of Arnolfini - one of Europe's leading centres for the contemporary arts, where she was involved with Bristol’s international poetry and storytelling festivals.

Una holds a B.A. in European Studies from the University of Limerick and Diplomas in Arts Administration (University College, Dublin) and European Business Management (University of West of England).
