The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is the development agency for the arts in Northern Ireland, providing a broad range of funding opportunities to artists and arts organisations. Their mission is to place the arts at the heart of our social, economic and creative life.

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland awards money from The National Lottery, as well as Government funds. Their grants enable artists and arts organisations to deliver projects which contribute to the creation of a flourishing arts sector.
As well as supporting the development of new art projects, they also ensure that the arts are brought within the reach of everyone by funding work that encourages as many people as possible to engage in the full range of creative activities.
Since the introduction of National Lottery funding, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland has invested in improving the network of arts venues across the region, with the result that there is now a purpose-built arts facility within 20 miles of every citizen of Northern Ireland.
