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. It relates to a RaISe research paper, Impact of COVID-19 on Arts and Culture in Northern Ireland, which was put together for the Committee for Communities and published on 30 November 2020.
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.
