Funding Success

Down Community Arts (DCA) has been successful in securing funding from the National Lottery Rural Engagement Arts Programme. The funding will support DCA’s ‘Person and Place Arts Programme’ providing creative opportunities for four community arts projects in Rowallane and Slieve Croob with artists Alison Lowry and Sharlene Oldroyd. The Person and Place Programme will seek to explore relationships between people, their communities and creativity, how arts connect people and place, how the past is relevant to the present and how it can help shape the future.”

Lizzie Devlin, Community Arts Development Officer, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, added, “Congratulations to Down Community Arts, Dermot McConaghy and the Murlough Community Association in developing and creating this new mural which has been community led and driven.  Projects such as this demonstrate the true power of the arts in bringing people and communities closer together. Well done to everyone involved.”
