Each year the Arts and Cultural Development Department delivers the Arts and Culture Small Grants Scheme. This is designed to assist and support groups to participate in arts and cultural projects within their own organisation and within the Cookstown District.
Over the years funding has been given towards a diverse range of projects. There have been arts and music festivals, shows and performances, summer schools for children , workshops, demonstrations and talks, cultural visits and outings , the creation of small public art displays and exhibitions – the list goes on.
The call for applications is advertised publicly at the end of March and groups are invited to submit their request for funding for arts and cultural events in the incoming financial year.
The Scheme is now closed for applications requesting funding for the 2014–15 financial year.
