Arts in Education Portal: Call for news and opportunities

Arts in Education Portal

Call for news and opportunities 

Do you have upcoming events, news or opportunities that you want to share with the Arts-in-Education Community?

The new national Arts in Education Portal will be launched in May 2015. This national initiative is being driven by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Department of Education & Skills, as part of the implementation of the Arts in Education Charter. The vision for the Portal is to be the key national digital resource of arts and education practice in Ireland.

The news and opportunities section of the Portal aims to provide a space for finding out about policy updates, current events, projects, funding and opportunities, both locally and nationally.

News items should be relevant to the Arts-in-Education sector, and should relate to:

  • An upcoming sectoral event, exhibition or launch;
  • An opportunity for artists and/or teachers, for example, CPD, training, or an open call for projects;
  • A funding opportunity;
  • A significant development in policy;
  • The publication of a document or a piece of research relevant to the field.


Submissions should be no longer than 300 words and should include the following:

  • A title
  • Name of author or agency
  • Contact details
  • A date or deadline (after 19th May)
  • A high-res image


Please send submissions to Jo Holmwood / Orla Kenny at [email protected] by 30th April 2015.
