2022 – 23 Arts Programme

Thanks to Arts Council Northern Ireland our principal funder for supporting DCA for another year. Our programme of activity this year will be a little bit different. 

The 2022/23 artistic programme will provide a balanced approach to community arts provision in Newry Mourne and Down. The programme will work to be inclusive of the needs of both the participant and the artists with a focus on creating quality artistic outcomes that enhances the practice of artists and engagement that empowers the participant.

Our programme will deliver:

  • 6 projects for communities
  • 6 projects for children and young people
  • 6 projects for older people
  • Activity for 554 participants
  • 164 workshops
  • Projects in 8 locations across Newry Mourne and Down
