Arts Challenge Fund - Love Living Here Through The Arts

‘Love Living Here through The Arts’, the new Arts Challenge Fund was launched earlier this year. This exciting new project was jointly funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland (ACNI) to the tune of £122k and matched with £123k from Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council. This funding will allow us to deliver a number of arts programmes to support the Council’s new Community Plan ‘Love Living Here’

This is an inclusive programme available for all ages and abilities.

The Arts Challenge Fund has five strands which are designed to utilise the power of the arts and creative engagement. These programmes will aim to address some of the most significant challenges facing the Borough and its residents.  The objective is to reach out to a wide range of different groups and those living in every part of the Borough. They include;

  • Village Artist in Residence programme

  • Issue Based Theatre Programme

  • Love Living Here Programme

  • Older Peoples Arts Programme 

  • Community Arts Apprenticeship Programm 

  • If you would like to know more about how you can get involved, either as an artist or through one of the many programmes, please contact Leeann Murray , Arts Development Officer  on 028 9034 0228 or email [email protected]
