Donegal Local Live Performance Programming Support Scheme (LLPPSS) 2022 PHASE 4

Donegal Local Live Performance Programming Support Scheme (LLPPSS)
 Phase 4 ( July - October 2022)


Call for applications is now closed.

In 2021, the Department for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media announced a major suite of COVID-19 measures to support and assist the Live Performance Sector.


The Department now wishes to give a further boost to the sector, and to the wider local economy, over the Summer and the Autumn months of 2022 ( July-October ) by engaging the services of locally based professional artists, musicians, crew and other staff members involved in live performances. The Department has provided for a Phase 4 of the Local Live Performance Programming Support Scheme and has requested that local authorities manage and administer the scheme on its behalf.
