Dublin UNESCO City of Literature Small Grants Scheme 2023

Dublin UNESCO City of Literature supported by Dublin City Council provides small grants up to a maximum of €5,000 to individuals and organisations which contribute to the promotion of literature in the City.

We are particularly interested in projects that:

  • display innovation and diversity, in line with the objectives of Dublin UNESCO City of Literature’s strategy over the 2020 – 2022 period.
  • prioritise free and accessible events for the public.

Funding is available for activities/ projects that take place between 1st January – 31st December 2023.

We are committed to allocating our limited resources across as many organisations as possible and this may mean that recipients who have been successful in receiving funding in the past may not necessarily be allocated a grant again in 2023. It may however be possible for a partial grant to be given so it is useful for us if you break down your submission into constituent parts to enable us to identify where we may be able to assist in some way.
