Mobility of Collections Scheme, Dept. AHRRGA (Funding)

Posted: Wednesday, 10 May 2017

The Department of Arts, Heritage Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs operates a Mobility of Collections Scheme to support greater regional and local access to material held in the National Collections. Deadline: 12 noon, 21 July 2017.

As it is not possible for the National Cultural Institutions to display their full collection at any one time, the purpose of this scheme is to:

  • Assist in putting items from the National Collections on display to the public on a greater and wider basis;
  • Facilitate the display of pieces from the National Collections with specific local and regional interest direct to those communities; and
  • Facilitate the display of cultural artefacts and relating exhibitions outside urban centres into rural areas.

Types of projects which are considered under the scheme are as follows:

  • Funding the costs associated with the transport of pieces from the National Collections to/from a regional/local Institution; or/and
  • Funding the cost of insuring pieces from the National Collection whilst being transported to/from a regional/local institution; or/and
  • Funding the costs of the exhibition of pieces from the National Collections in regional/ local institutions.
