Dublin City Council is seeking applications from all interested parties including performing artists (ensembles/bands or individuals), promoters, producers, venues etc, who wish to receive support – both financial and logistical – for outdoor performance events whether in parks or in the public domain in the Dublin City Council Administrative Area (see map here) this summer.
The season will run from July 1 to September 30.
“The aim of this scheme is to facilitate programming of outdoor live performances in summer 2021 should public health considerations permit,” says the council.
“Performances can be recorded or streamed if health restrictions prevent live events or as local authorities deem appropriate.”
All genres of performance (music, spectacle, circus, street arts etc) are encouraged to apply to this scheme.
Small scale solo performances and unplugged presentations through to amplified concerts will be considered.
“We welcome joint applications from producers and performing artists.
“Family or all-ages performance events are particularly welcome.
“The proposal may be for multiple or single events.
“All events will be either free of charge or have a nominal charge, if supported by Dublin City Council,” it says.
Round one applications must include a brief description of the performing artist(s), description of the proposal, an idea for a suitable venue, a range of feasible dates, technical requirements, and detailed budget.
