The promotion of Ireland, its culture and creativity are important elements in the work of the Embassy of Ireland in Ljubljana. The Embassy is therefore interested in learning from you of projects you might have in mind in this regard. For a limited number of projects, the Embassy can provide financial support for activities that promote Ireland and its culture.
If you are planning a project or event that promotes Ireland or Irish culture we would be happy to learn about it. You may request an application form by Contacting Us. Completed applications should be submitted to the same e-mail address.
Project proposals are assessed individually with the principal criteria being the extent to which the project promotes Ireland and the perceived capacity of the organisers to carry out the projects successfully. Applications for funding should be made well in advance of the project, and not later than six weeks before the start of the project.
The Embassy provides funding on a reimbursement basis. In exceptional circumstances the Embassy may at its discretion advance part of the funds awarded before expenditure or the event has taken place.
Every application for funding will be assessed on its merits. The below list of allowable expenditure is for guidance and is not exhaustive. The Embassy will not reimburse expenses that it regards as excessive. It will also not reimburse expenditure which cannot be properly accounted for.
In addition to funding provided by the Embassy, you will wish to be aware that Culture Ireland operates a range of funding programmes to support and promote the presentation of Irish arts internationally. Culture Ireland offers grant funding towards costs which relate directly to the international presentation of the event, i.e. travel and travel related costssuch as transport, accommodation and subsistence. More information about Culture Ireland funding programmes, including deadlines for receipt of Culture Ireland grant application is available at Culture Ireland funding. We ask that you inform the Embassy of any applications being made to Culture Ireland.
