In Featured, Local Issues, South Roscommon by Denis Naughten

Local Minister Denis Naughten is pleased to confirm that Roscommon Arts Centre is set to receive capital funding of €276,615 as part of more than €9 million in capital funding for arts and culture centres across the country which are being announced this morning by his Cabinet colleague the Minister for Arts Heather Humphreys.

A total of 56 cultural organisations will benefit from the Government’s capital investment, including theatres, heritage centres, galleries, archives, integrated arts centres, artist studios and creative and performance spaces. The allocation is part of the Creative Ireland programme which focuses on investing in the country’s cultural infrastructure confirms Naughten.

“I am extremely pleased that Roscommon Arts Centre will receive such a substantial level of funding to ensure the whole centre is wheelchair accessible and improvements made to its visitor centre. I can also confirm the allocation of €50,000 to Glenamaddy Arts & Historical Co-Op Society Lt for much need maintenance work. The main objective of these capital grants is to maintain and enhance these creative centres which hold a special place in our community.”

“A vibrant cultural sector is essential to society and investment in local arts and cultural centres helps to facilitate access to and participation in the arts in communities across the region,” added Naughten.

“A further allocation of funding under this Scheme will be announced in the coming weeks. It will be geared towards providing smaller capital grants of up to €20,000 to not-for-profit organisations with a defined arts and cultural remit. This funding will make a huge difference to individual groups and organisations involved,” concluded Minister Naughten.
