Open Call for Local Live Performance Programming

Dublin City Council is seeking applications from all interested parties including Performing Artists (ensembles/bands or individuals), Promoters, Producers, Venues etc, who wish to receive support - both financial and logistical - for outdoor performance events whether in Parks or in the Public Domain in the Dublin City Council Administrative Area (see map here) from July 1st to September 30th 2021.

Two public Information sessions will take place on Zoom on Thursday 10th & Friday 11th June @10am.  Information here.

The aim of this scheme is to facilitate programming of outdoor live performances in summer 2021 should public health considerations permit. Performances can be recorded or streamed if health restrictions prevent live events or as local authorities deem appropriate.

All genres of performance (Music, Spectacle, Circus, Street Arts etc) are encouraged to apply to this scheme. Small scale solo performances and unplugged presentations through to amplified concerts will be considered. We welcome joint applications from producers and performing artists. Family or all-ages performance events are particularly welcome. The proposal may be for multiple or single events. All events will be either free of charge or have a nominal charge, if supported by Dublin City Council. Tá fáilte roimh iarrataisí I nGaeilge.



The deadline for application is Wednesday 23rd June at 12 noon.
