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.
Mid Ulster District Council Arts & Culture Grants scheme 2015–16 is currently closed.
