Minister Catherine Martin
The funding is to support Irish artists, arts organisations and Irish cultural centres abroad to present events covering architecture, dance, film, literature, music, theatre and the visual arts on the international stage.

The funding worth almost €2 million was announced by the Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD.

“It is vital that we continue to support our artists as they work to present their work globally in new and innovative ways,” said Minister Martin. “I am delighted that the Culture Ireland funding announced today will assist Irish artists to reach audiences worldwide in person, where possible and return to making cultural connections and building audiences for Irish arts.”

Included in the awards is a total of €1.47m in funding for the promotion of Irish arts through annual agreements for 2022 between Culture Ireland and partner organisations: Irish Film Institute International, Literature Ireland, and First Music Contact, as well as two of Ireland's key cultural centres, Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris and Irish Arts Centre, New York.

The Irish Film Institute International plan to bring Irish film back to world cinemas and to curate hybrid programmes for online presentation of Irish film as required, building on the 2021 programme with events in 52 cities and 34 countries to date.

Literature Ireland’s funding will enable the organisation to continue its important core work of building an international appreciation of contemporary Irish literature, primarily through support for the translation of the work of Irish writers and attendance at key international book fairs.

A total of €393,700 of the funding will enable presentation of 47 individual art projects covering film, literature, music, theatre and the visual arts in 15 countries around the world. This includes US tours by a number of traditional Irish bands such as We Banjo 3, Lunasa, Goitse and The Jeremiahs over the St Patricks Day period, as well as a strong programme of Irish musicians at Celtic Connections in Glasgow in January.

Irish Film London has been awarded a grant of €5,000 to go towards the presentation of Irish artists at the organisations’ St. Brigid’s Day programme in London.
