Sky Arts has announced it will invest €230,000 in an Irish arts organisation in the next Sky Arts Ignition application round.

SKY ARTS HAS announced that it will invest €230,000 in the arts in Ireland with the next Sky Arts Ignition application.

The winning applicant will receive the funding to fund a new project, to be co-developed between the two organisations and any contributing artists.

In a statement this evening, Sky Arts said it would also provide marketing and new media support  to the winning organisation to bring the project to the widest possible audience.

This will be the third project in the Sky Arts Ignition series, and will be open exclusively to Irish arts organisations this round.

“It’s a fantastic way for us to help support Ireland’s cultural vibrancy,” said James Hunt, Director of Sky Arts. “We’ve been fortunate enough to work with some wonderful UK institutions as part of Sky Arts Ignition. I’m excited to see what new partnership we can forge in Ireland to deliver a thrilling new project.”

Applications will be accepted from today via the Sky Arts Ignition series website,, where full guidelines for entries can also be found.  The deadline for applications is 2 April 2013.
