Mayo County Council Arts Plan 2018 - 2022

Mayo County Council Arts Office is currently developing a new five-year strategic arts plan for the county, which will be produced early next year.

We are actively seeking the views of those involved and interested in the arts, at all levels, within the county. This includes arts venues, festivals, artists, communities and people who use, or who benefit from our service.

We would welcome your contribution. Please complete our Arts Plan questionnaire, link below. (Alternatively you can write, email or phone the arts office. Or you can request a word document of the questionnaire)

Our current arts plan can be viewed here Mayo County Council Strategic Arts Plan 2011-2016
