Hi – this is going to be very random indeed!
Culture Ireland EU Presidency Funding Call by 15th Aug
2012- check submission requirements.
Culture Ireland is planning a cultural programme to mark Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union which spans the first six months of 2013. Proposals are invited from Irish artists and companies and European presenters. Tours to multiple locations are welcome. Through this programme it is hoped to engage with citizens within Europe and beyond. The Presidency coincides with the 40th anniversary of Ireland’s accession to the EU and 2013 is also likely to be designated as the European Year of Citizens. The cultural programme offers the opportunity to expand the reach of Irish culture to new audiences and to build on the presence of Irish artists at key European festivals and venues. It is intended to present a range of artistic events across the EU with a special focus on France and Germany. Projects should be submitted online here as part of our Special Initiatives programme. Large scale significant projects which may require early confirmation for contract purposes should be signalled as early as possible. Closing date for submission of proposals is the 15th of August 2012. http://www.cultureireland.ie/funding/schemes/special-initiatives   http://www.cultureireland.ie/funding/schemes/special-initiatives
