Increasing health and wellbeing and providing a sense of place for everyone.
We believe it’s all about participation too, so whether you want to take part in an arts activity, get your school or community group involved in an arts programme – or even if you fancy volunteering – there really is something for everyone!
We offer funding to training opportunities, information on local grants and bursaries for amateur and professional artists and arts organisations, to develop their skills and explore ways of transferring those skills. We promote collaborative creative processes at grassroots level which enhance access and participation and strengthen the community’s sense of authorship and ownership.

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council seeks members for a new Arts Advisory Panel
Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is seeking up to 10 voluntary members for a new Arts Advisory Panel to act as a forum to engage with and obtain feedback and involvement from community representatives in the delivery of the Council’s Arts strategies and on issues requiring further discussion in meeting the future Arts needs of our community.
In launching the new Arts Advisory Panel, Councillor Tim Morrow said “Arts and Culture have a critical role in stimulating levels of creativity that not only support the development and well–being of our communities but also our economy as they are an important catalyst for learning, discovery and achievement. The arts also seek to empower people and very often give a voice to the voiceless. This new Arts Advisory Panel will therefore support the ambitious and creative work of the Council’s Arts Service to not only champion our city’s artistic population but to emulate them and make our communities everything we want them to be and in this, I encourage you to become involved.”
The appointments will be for the duration of the term of the Council (normally 4 years) with an option to review every 2 year period. All applicants will be informed of the outcome in writing and a reserve list will be held of those who wish to remain available for later vacancies that may arise.
How to Apply
An Application Form must be completed outlining your relevant experience and suitability for a position on the Panel and should it be deemed necessary, interviews will be held on Friday 28 April 2017.
The deadline for completed applications is Friday 21 April at 4pm, which must be delivered to Lynda McCord, Arts Administration Assistant, ISLAND Arts Centre, The ISLAND, Lisburn, BT27 4RL.
Please note that late submissions will not be accepted.
