Anderson encourages Derry take-up of Creative Industries Innovation Fund
Sinn Féin Junior Minister Martina Anderson MLA (Foyle) is encouraging companies and Cultural Groups to take advantage of the Creative Industries Innovation Fund.
Martina Anderson said:
"A £4million Creative Industries Innovation Fund has just been announced by Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín. It is designed to assist businesses involved in digital content projects such as animation, web and mobile content, e-learning, film, television and music.
" I don't believe their is anywhwere else on this island better equipped to take advantage of such a programme as Derry. Derry is reknowned for its creativity and the abundance of talent in production of stage, literature, song,music and dance. There is no part of Culture and Arts in which Derry cannot shine.
"I would encourage all of those in the Culture and Arts sector in the City to take advantage of this opportunity to access funding, particularly for development of projects aimed at the City of Culture 2013.
"Applications for funding can be accessed at http://www.artscouncil-ni.org/award/innovation.html . Grants of up to £10,000 are available and the deadline is 29th August 2011 therefore there is no time to waste." Críoch
