Dr. Suzanne Lyle from the Visual Arts Council NI - 10th April 2017
*

Dr Lyle and Rotarian PE Jim Dunlop


Dr Lyle explained that the guiding principle for their work is to provide an opportunity for all to access the arts. She then went on to give a comprehensive insight into their work in all its diversity from supporting large arts organisations such as the Ulster Orchestra to supporting individual artists; projects with a focus on mental health; community initiatives which promote integration & shared space; arts and older people projects and projects specifically designed to engage young people with the arts to name but a few.

She also gave details of funding & how it is allocated and interestingly disclosed that very few applications for funding had come from groups in the East Antrim area.
