The Arts Service of Louth Local Authorities
Louth Local Authorities are committed to developing arts services which strengthen, and give voice to the stories and experiences of every corner of Louth. To this end, an Arts Officer is employed by Louth County Council, Drogheda Borough Council and Dundalk Town Council. Through shared aims, and mutually agreed strategies laid out in the Arts Plan – English or Arts Plan – Irish an Arts Service is provided through the three Arts Offices working as part of a team.
The work of each Arts Office is wide and varied, but can be broadly covered in five main work areas:
Community & Education Programme
Provision of Funding
Provision of Information & Advice
The business of the Arts Service is not to make art; rather, it is to contribute to the appropriate conditions where creativity and imagination can flourish
