Government Investment

  • The Arts Council has selected Tuam for a 3-year pilot programme for investment in the arts.

    It's hoped the pilot programme, with funding of €150,000 per year, will encourage the local community to get involved in developing the arts in the town.

    A public meeting will be held in Tuam Library next Thursday evening 18th July at 5pm for anyone interested in finding out more about the initiative.

    The funding is part of the Creative Places Ireland programme, which is aimed at communities that have not benefitted from sustained public investment in the arts.
