Submissions invited on new Arts
Development Plan for Clare
The Clare County Arts Office has announced
it is preparing a new County Arts Development Plan, which will seek
to build on the positive progress made by the local arts sector in recent
Submissions from interested parties are
currently being invited in relation to the proposed Plan, the development
of which coincides with the development of a National Cultural Policy
by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and follows the
recent launch of The Arts Council's new 10-year strategy.
In preparing the Plan, the Clare County
Arts Office says it will be "reflecting on the work done over the
last number of years in the county and looking forward to help further
sustain and develop the arts in the County."
Siobhán Mulcahy, County
Arts Officer said, "The aims in the previous plan have
stood us in good stead over the last number of years, but we welcome
this opportunity to review them and to create tangible objectives, plans
and policies that will continue to place County Clare as a leader in
local arts development into the future.'
The aims of the previous plan were to
create quality opportunities for artists and the public to interact
and inspire each other, assist professional artists to create new work
through concentrated supports and promotion, protect and promote our
traditional arts, and encourage sustainable arts development through
the allocation of realistic time-scales and resources.
"Submissions in relation to the core
aims of the plan as well as ideas as to how these aims can be achieved
are welcome," said Ms. Mulcahy.
Copies of the current plan are available
and at www.clarecoco.ie.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is Friday, December 18th, 2015.
