Business to Arts welcomes the launch of Culture 2025 – A National Cultural Policy Framework to 2025 by Minister Josepha Madigan TD and the Department of Culture, Heritage & Galetacht on Jan 10, 2020.

Culture 2025 sets the direction for Government policy across the cultural sector, including the arts, the Irish language and the creative, heritage and audiovisual sectors.  It details the Government’s aspirations for these areas and how these aspirations can be achieved.

Key actions contained within Culture 2025 include:

  • Increasing access to and participation in the arts and boosting our creative industries;
  • Working collaboratively to enable the creative potential of every child and young person;
  • Investing in our Gaeltacht and supporting the Irish language;
  • Supporting traditional culture and securing global recognition for unique Irish cultural traditions;
  • And protecting and promoting Ireland’s natural habitats and biodiversity;

Business to Arts welcomes the Government’s commitment to double the amount of public funding for arts and culture by 2025 to €576m.

We also welcome the Government commitment to “encouraging strong, mutually beneficial links between the business and arts community.” As part of this commitment, Government states it will “examine ways to further promote private investment across the cultural sector.” The overall aim of this policy is to ensure that both public and private sector funding for the cultural sector rests on a solid base, which will enable the Sector to protect and harness our cultural heritage.
