In January 2021, Wicklow County Council Arts Office made available a series of supports to assist artists and organisations in Wicklow in making their funding applications.  These supports were again made available in February 2022. 

The supports included an online webinar for Individual Artists or Artists in Organisations, one-to-one clinics for Individual Artists applying to the Arts Council’s Bursary Scheme and an online workshop focusing on the new online process of applying and submitting applications for Wicklow County Arts Office Arts Act Funding. 

These events have now ended but, we have shared the Online Webinar slides and a selection of Q & A's which emerged during these support sessions in 2021.  The 2022 versions will be made available shortly.
