Donegal Local Live Performance Programming Support Scheme (LLPPSS) 2021

The Department for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media recently announced a €50m suite of COVID-19 measures to support and assist the live performance sector. Within that allocation,  there was a separate allocation for local authorities to ‘support live performances by engaging the services of locally-based professional artists, musicians, crew and other staff members involved in live performances.’


General Information


With this in mind, Donegal County Council invites applications from suitably experienced producer/promoters, venues, festival organisers or artists groups – or partnerships thereof – for support under the Donegal Local Live Performance Programming Scheme (LLPPSS) towards the presentation an ambitious live performance event, or a series of live performance events, where one such event or series of events takes place in each of the county’s five Municipal Districts, over the months of August and September. All events supported under the Scheme must be completed no later than September 30, 2021.

Publicly-funded applicants should note, however, that support may not be sought under Donegal LLPPSS for on-going programmes that are already funded from other sources.


Closing Date


The Closing Date for receipt of completed applications for support under the Donegal LLPPSS is Close of Business (5.00pm) on Thursday, August 5, 2021.
