We are delighted to announce the following funding opportunity to support GANS events for August Craft Month. This initiative is available to the member organisations of DCCI: Guilds, Associations, Networks and Societies (GANS).

We would like to offer up to €500 to each interested GANS, towards supporting events for August Craft Month 2023!

It is up to each GANS to decide how the €500 is used. Suggestions include holding a GANS members exhibition, demonstrations, workshops, fun activities, or to fund a GANS member to host their own event, with materials.

We are looking forward to having each GANS involved with August Craft Month and we eagerly anticipate your application.
