Arts Policy Making & Planning

The developmental needs of the arts in Mayo are monitored and assessed on an ongoing basis by the Arts Service. 

Mayo County Council Strategic Arts Plan sets out priorities and relevant actions, for the continuing development of the arts in Mayo in the years 2011-2016.

The Arts Plan complements the 10 year County Development Strategy of the County Development Board, which sets out the framework for the integrated social, cultural and economic development of Mayo.
