How has COVID-19 Emergency Funding for the arts and culture Sectors in Northern Ireland been distributed?

This visualisation provides a snapshot of emergency funding provided to the arts and culture sectors in Northern Ireland. This funding is part of a range of measures supported by COVID-19 emergency funding from the Department for Communities to address key challenges arising from the effects of the pandemic. The mapping visualisation features a series of emergency funds administered by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland to support individual artists and arts organisations. The visual provides a breakdown by fund type, by art form, and at ward, constituency and local government district levels.

RaISe will endeavour to update the series in line with future publication of government figures.


This visualisation was first published on our Research Matters blog on 25th November 2020.
