Résumé exécutif: 

The four goals of the UNESCO 2005 Convention are intrinsically reflected in cultural policy development in Ireland. In the past four years, the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media has published Culture 2025 – A National Cultural Policy Framework to 2025. This is the first such framework for culture in Ireland and sets out the key policies and programmes for the cultural and creative sector up to 2025. Under the Framework, the Government of Ireland has developed and is implementing an all of Government programme – Creative Ireland – tasked with making creativity part of the life of the nation and giving everyone the opportunity to access and experience culture and creativity.

At the same time, Global Ireland 2025 aims to double Ireland’s cultural footprint and double funding for the cultural and creative sector between 2018 and 2025. Under this all of Government programme, culture is recognized for its part in reaching out to Ireland’s diaspora and connecting with and forging deeper relations with other cultures. Cutural measures include the appointment of several high-profile ambassadors for culture and increased support for Irish cultural centres in a number of countries.

There have already been notable successes from the introduction of the aforementioned programmes, including the development of a Creative Youth Plan for children and young people as well as the development of Creative Communities plans for each local government authority area in Ireland, bringing opportunities for artists to work in diverse and often rural locations and simultaneously bringing diverse cultural experiences to new audiences. These policies and programmes support the growth of the cultural and creative sectors, emphasise the growing recognition of culture as a contributor to the sustainable development of Ireland’s regions and its role in fostering the creative potential of the child, as well as underpinning the development and mobility of artists and cultural operators. They are supported by an almost 15% increase in overall public finding for culture in the period 2016 to 2020.

2020 has been a year of disruption, however, due to the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cultural and creative sectors. While opportunities to perform live and travel have been severely curtailed, the sectors are using every opportunity to bring their art and talents to the public, primarily through online performance. Government and the various state agencies are working with the sector to support it through this time of crisis and help it to rebuild from the heavy toll of the pandemic.

Culture 2025 is Ireland’s first National Cultural Policy Framework that 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. Central to Culture 2025 is the recognition of the value of culture and creativity to the individual and society, the need to support creative practice and cultural participation and a commitment to cherish Ireland’s cultural heritage. 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 (designated Irish language speaking areas) 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. Key values contained with Culture 2025 include: • The intrinsic value of culture; • The value of arts, culture and heritage to our lives and our communities; • The right of everyone to participate in the cultural and creative life of the nation; • The value of creativity to individual and collective wellbeing; • The value of cultural diversity, informed by the many traditions and social backgrounds that constitute contemporary Ireland; • The value of culture as a means of fostering a more sustainable future for Ireland, including through economic, environmental and social policy; and • The value of culture in presenting Ireland to the world. Culture 2025 is underpinned by a renewed Government commitment to double the amount of public funding for arts and culture from 2017 levels by 2025, from €288m ($336m) to €576m ($674m).

The Creative Ireland Programme is the Irish Government’s major five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy. It is an all-of government initiative to mainstream creativity in the life of the people so that individually and collectively, in our personal lives and in our institutions, we can realise our full creative potential. It is the main implementation vehicle for the priorities identified in Culture 2025, which sees a vibrant cultural ecosystem as essential to society. The core proposition of this culture-based programme is that participation in cultural activity drives personal and collective creativity, with significant implications for individual and societal wellbeing and achievement. Its main feature is the collective mobilisation of Irish institutions and citizens to create an Irish cultural legacy. It brings an enhanced level of coordination, focus and leadership to existing policies and initiatives across national and local government, State agencies, the arts and culture sector, Gaeltacht and Irish language organisations, and provides linkages to the private business and NGO sectors. It also supports a representation of Ireland to the outside world that is well grounded, widely understood and meaningful. Creative Ireland coordinates and enables the construction of that representation, seeking coherence among all stakeholders and placing a clear focus on our rich cultural heritage and our creativity. Under the guiding principles of creativity, collaboration and transformation, the Programme strives to; • promote understanding and appreciation of the value of creativity in all its forms; • engage and influence decision-makers to embed creativity across public policy; and • support and enable participation in creative industries. The Creative Ireland programme consists of five pillars; 1. Enabling the Creative Potential of Every Child; 2. Enabling Creativity in Every Community; 3. Investing in our Creative and Cultural Infrastructure; 4. Ireland as a Centre of Excellence in Media Production; and 5. Unifying our Global Reputation

Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 
The Creative Ireland Programme works through various Government Departments and agencies to make significant progress in each of the five pillars listed above. Investments are focused on supporting direct engagement with creativity (e.g., on education, institutions, industry, etc.) as well as creativity as a way of engaging with broader societal issues (e.g. mental illness, social marginalisation, rural isolation, poverty, isolation of the aged, individuals with disabilities or special needs, migrant integration, intercultural dialogue, climate action, biodiversity loss, etc.). The following is a summary implementation update in respect of each of the pillars. 1. Enabling the Creative Potential of Every Child The national Creative Youth Plan was published in December 2017 with four key objectives: (i) supporting collaboration between formal and non-formal approaches to creativity in education; (ii) extending the range of creative activities for our young people; (iii) embedding the creative process by developing programmes that will enable teachers to help young people learn and apply creative skills and capacities; and (iv) continuing professional development for teachers working in Early Years, Primary and Post Primary Schools The Creative Youth Plan is led by a working group including the Creative Ireland Programme office in the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, and the Arts Council. The key results to date are: - Creating Positive Outcomes with Creative Schools: Through an annual grant and access to a Creative Associate (either a teacher with arts practice, or a creative or arts practitioner), schools are supported to develop and begin to implement their own Creative School plan. The long-term aim is to enable schools to fully embrace the arts and creativity, ensuring a positive experience and strong outcomes for children. Schools all around Ireland are now participating in this initiative, including primary, post-primary, Youthreach, Irish language, special schools and schools with DEIS (disadvantaged) status. - Fostering Co-Operation with Creative Clusters: Creative Clusters are groups of between two and five schools working together on a creative project. A facilitator provided by the Education Centre helps each cluster formulate their plan and a fund of €2,500 ($2925) is provided to each cluster. Projects include coding, drama, Green Forest and Wellbeing. - A Structured Approach to Creativity: Local Creative Youth Partnerships: These Partnerships provide a structure for the development and co-ordination of out-of-school creative activities for children and young people by bringing together a variety of actors in education, local government, community and arts sectors to establish and nurture new partnerships and networks. Partnerships also aim to enhance creative and cultural activities in disadvantaged areas. - Creative Ireland is also working with and providing support to Youth Theatre Ireland, Fighting Words creative writing skills initiative, Sing Ireland and Music Generation to enhance their offerings to children and young people. Cruinniú na nÓg, a national day of free creativity for children and young people was established in 2018 with 500 free events and activities organised. In 2019 this increased to over 780 free events/activities with an estimated 55,000 children participating. In 2020, Cruinniú moved online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic with over 500 events taking place mainly online and participation by almost 500,000 children and their families. 2. Enabling Creativity in Every Community Creative Communities engages local communities with creativity to support place-making, social cohesion (encompassing social inclusion), and the local creative economy. Through investment in the Local Authorities, initiatives were developed to enhance creativity in every community across Ireland. Each Local Authority published a Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022 in consultation with their local communities. These are now being implemented through 1300+ projects a year. A cross-sectoral Culture and Creativity Team led by a local coordinator has been established in each Local Authority to lead this engagement of citizens with our heritage and culture. Projects have addressed people, place and identity, social, economic and environmental challenges and a clear picture has emerged of a common ambition and vision to work as pro-active catalysts, where creativity contributes to addressing the wider social challenges that constitute the context of and conditions for ‘wellbeing, social cohesion and economic success’ 3. Investing in our Creative and Cultural Infrastructure Investing in Our Culture, Language and Heritage 2018-2027 is a ten-year plan which sets out the commitment for capital investment in Ireland’s cultural, heritage and Irish language infrastructure. The development of this plan, facilitated by the Creative Ireland Programme vision, includes investment of €460 million ($538m) in Ireland’s national cultural institutions, ensuring that they continue to protect and present the national collections, as well as creating new spaces for creativity and engagement. A new capital grant scheme to renew and enhance existing arts and culture facilities throughout the country is also established. Notably, this new scheme, for which an initial funding envelope of almost €5 million ($5.85m) has been identified, includes environmental sustainability as a key criterion for investment in line with the Government’s new Climate Action Policy. 4. Ireland as a Centre of Excellence in Media Production A number of initiatives have been progressed under this pillar including; • A new €200 million ($234m) Audiovisual Action Plan to support the screen industries (feature film, TV drama, etc.) was published in June 2018, and it aims to position Ireland as a global hub for the production of film, TV drama and animation. There is more information on the Plan under Measure 6 of this Goal; • In response to the ambition of Future Jobs Ireland 2019 to identify opportunities in the wider creative industries sector, the Creative Ireland Programme is currently working to finalise a Roadmap for the Creative Industries, in consultation with the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation. The Roadmap is focused on the design-based, digital creative and content creation industries 5. Unifying our Global Reputation To realise the ambition for Ireland and Irish people to be recognised internationally as a cultural and creative nation, a number of key initiatives have been undertaken as follows: • Irish culture and creativity featured prominently in Global Ireland 2025, the most ambitious expansion of Ireland’s international presence ever undertaken. Many of its actions to bring Irish culture and heritage to the wider world have been delivered through the Department’s Culture Ireland programme including the hosting of a conference on how best we can promote our culture globally, capital support for the redevelopment of the Irish Arts Center New York and the London Irish Centre, and the appointment of five Cultural Ambassadors; • The Department’s Culture Ireland programme presented GB18, a special year-long programme designed to celebrate and renew the unique cultural relationship between Ireland and Great Britain. • Each year Culture Ireland support Ireland’s representation at the Venice Biennale, which offers a unique opportunity to showcase Irish talent to the world and enabled Irish architects to achieve international exposure with visitor numbers reaching over one quarter of a million; and • In 2019 a new partnership was created with the Fulbright Programme to enable three Irish post-graduate students opportunities to undertake short-term research at one of three world-class museums in the United States. In addition, some interesting innovations and partnerships emerged outside of the five pillars including; • the National Creativity Fund 2018/2019 was established to identify and support pilot projects that are genuinely innovative and significantly add value to the Creative Ireland Programme, and to help inform policy and/or cross-sectoral development in the area of culture, creativity and wellbeing; and • exploration in how the cultural and creative sectors can engage the public on the challenges and opportunities related to climate change and biodiversity loss in imaginative ways.

Global Ireland 2025 is the Government’s strategy for doubling the scope and impact of Ireland’s global footprint in the period 2018 to 2025. It represents the most ambitious renewal and expansion of Ireland’s international presence ever undertaken. It enables Ireland to be more ambitious in advancing our strategic international objectives, promoting our values and exerting our influence, both within and beyond the European Union. It accelerates progress on diversifying and growing Ireland’s exports, inward investment and tourism, particularly in response to the challenges posed by the UK’s departure from the EU. It strengthens Ireland’s engagement with our 70 million-strong diaspora, and bolsters our efforts to bring our culture and heritage to the wider world. It also supports Ireland’s foreign policy objectives including international development, peace, disarmament and security. Global Ireland 2025 commits to a number of measures which will positively impact the creative and cultural sectors, these include; • Promotion of Irish arts, heritage and culture to new generations and new audiences across the world. • Enable Culture Ireland to implement a seven-year programme of international promotion of Irish arts and culture, • Appoint high-profile actors and artists as Cultural Ambassadors for Ireland. • Convene a conference of cultural stakeholders to discuss how best to establish curated and strategic cultural programmes that advance our global visibility and strengthen our global relationships. • Establish a network between Irish cultural centres across Europe and North America • Expand Ireland’s network of international film co-production treaties, including with China, and increase opportunities for Irish producers to co-produce more effectively with international producers, media organisations and major studios. • Double the size of Ireland’s film production sector through Screen Ireland, which has been allocated €200 ($234m) million for a 10- year capital investment programme under the National Development Plan • Launch a MOOC (an online course aiming for unlimited participation) with an accredited qualification in the Irish Language and Irish Traditional Culture • Implement an annual programme of region-specific international campaigns promoting Ireland’s culture and media to both new and growth markets and audiences over the period 2018-2025. • Promoting Ireland’s values of peace, humanitarianism, equality and justice, including through Ireland’s successful campaign for election to the UN Security Council.

Successful implementation of Global Ireland 2025 requires multi-annual cross government coordination involving all relevant Departments and agencies. The results in the culture segment to date include; • Five high‐profile Cultural Ambassadors appointed for a period of three years. • A Global Ireland conference of cultural stakeholders took place in order to identify how best to improve Ireland’s global visibility and strengthen our global relationships. • Culture Ireland continues to support Irish artists performing internationally. • Continued strategic partnerships with a number of cultural centres, including the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and the New York Irish Arts Center. • Government commitment of £1m towards the redevelopment of the London Irish Centre. It will be a flagship Irish cultural centre, alongside the Irish Arts Center, New York and Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris which present a year‐ round programme of Irish artists in these key cultural cities. • In 2018, supported by significant investment from the Irish Government, the Irish Arts Centre in New York broke ground on its new upgraded facility. The project is due for completion in 2020. • Recruitment has begun to appoint a number of Cultural Officers in international locations, who will be tasked with promoting Irish culture, creating new opportunities for Irish artists in key locations and maximizing the impact internationally of Government support for Irish artists. • A number of cross‐ sectoral regional strategies have been published, helping to intensify Ireland’s relations with specific regions, increasing trade and investment, improving political relationships, promoting Irish culture, and increasing people‐to‐people exchanges. • Ireland is also increasingly a centre of excellence for film, animation and TV production, opening windows into Ireland for new audiences and future visitors, and creating job opportunities for Irish artists and technicians. • Current funding of over €1m per annum is provided for teaching Irish in over forty universities worldwide. • In 2020 Ireland successfully secured a seat on the UN Security Council for the period 2021 -2022, which will place Ireland at the heart of UN decision-making on matters of vital importance, including international peace, security and development. • Ireland is highly regarded for its role in championing the universality and indivisibility of human rights and the protection of those who advocate and defend these rights. Ireland is actively pursuing initiatives it pioneered during its term on the UN Human Rights Council (2013-15), notably the protection and promotion of the role of civil society. • Ireland’s strong record at the United Nations of promoting the rights of women and girls is currently being carried forward through recent chairing of the Commission on the Status of Women (2018 & 2019), the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality.

The aim is that over the decade 2016–2025, the centrality of the arts to Irish life will have been strengthened by the Arts Council’s advocacy, support of artists throughout their careers, by the involvement of many agencies in cultural provision, by the impact of the arts on the creative economy, and by the depth and breadth of people’s engagement with the arts as a valued feature of their lives. Within the strategy there are twenty-one objectives - with a focus on partnerships; social inclusion; diverse communities and contexts; and arts provision for children and young people. It sets out five priority areas, each with a distinct goal. There are two policy areas that are identified as priorities: • ‘The Artist’ – Goal: Artists are supported to make excellent work which is enjoyed and valued; and • ‘Public Engagement’ – Goal: More people will enjoy high-quality arts experiences. In addition it designates three areas of planning and decision-making as priorities, as follows; • ‘Investment Strategy’ – Goal: Public monies are invested effectively to realise our priorities; • ‘Spatial and Demographic Planning’ – Goal: Well-planned arts provision benefits people across Ireland; and • ‘Developing Capacity’ – Goal: The Arts Council and the arts sector have the knowledge, skills and inventiveness to realise this strategy. The Arts Council upholds the rights of children and young people to enjoy their full cultural entitlements and accordingly a core objective of this strategy is ‘planning and providing for young people’, which states; • advocate for the centrality of the arts in formal education at all levels and for the provision of quality vocational training in the arts; • work with the Departments of Arts and of Education to achieve full implementation of the Arts in Education Charter; • invest in artists, arts organisations and key programmes dedicated to developing high quality work in arts-in-education and youth arts, and support the provision of excellent arts experiences for young people in the public domain; • make provision for children and young people a key focus of the Arts Council’s relationship with local government; • incorporate the Arts Council’s commitment to young people into the mainstream of decision-making and, where appropriate, into funding agreements with arts organisations. In their Three Year Plan- 2020-2022 the Arts Council reiterates its continued work to keep the arts at the centre of all national policy making and will continue much of the work started over the last three years: refining it, improving it and further developing it. The Plan is more externally focused, engaging more with diverse communities across Ireland, placing equality and human rights at the centre of all their activities and providing opportunities for artists and arts organisations to develop their skills and capacities in innovative and new ways across the digital realm and in cross-disciplinary practice.

Three-year planning cycles within the decade long strategic framework enables the achievement of medium-term objectives and long-term goals. During the Three-Year Plan 2017–2019 the following results were achieved; • Introduction of a new funding framework, which the Arts Council will continue to improve and streamline over the next three years; • New systems developed to better capture and use data and evidence to support decision-making and advocacy work; • New programmes and policies developed in the areas of diversity, equality and human rights, targeting support to particular communities. • Renewal and development of relationships with local authorities; • Review of how arts centres across the country were supported; • Commencement of the important work of addressing artists’ pay and conditions. Achievements to date include; • The Arts Council commissioned a study, carried out by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), which looked at arts and cultural participation among children and young people http://www.artscouncil.ie/uploadedFiles/Arts-and-cultural-particiption-GUI.pdf). • The Arts in Education Portal (http://www.artsineducation.ie) is a key national digital resource for arts and education practice in Ireland. • Creative Schools is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme and is led by the Arts Council. The long term aim is for every school to be supported to fully embrace the arts and creativity, ensuring a positive experience and strong outcomes for children and young people. • The Arts Council oversees three distinct programmes of activity in the area of international arts: the Creative Europe Desk Ireland – Culture Office; the Venice Biennale; Mobility of Artists and the provision of awards to support international collaboration. • Arts participation is a core value for the Arts Council in its commitment to increasing public access, participation and engagement in the arts. It is broken down into five different strands, each with its own set of knowledge, expertise and cross-sector partnerships. These include: Arts and Health; Arts and Disability; Cultural Diversity and the Arts; Arts and Communities; and Arts and Older People. The Arts Council funds a number of key organisations and agencies that have a central role in supporting these strands of work. • In 2019 the Arts Council launched their Equality, Human Rights and Diversity Policy and Strategy which builds on their work areas in Arts and Disability, Cultural Diversity and Arts Policy and Dignity at Work. • The Arts Council offers a wide range of financial supports across artforms and arts practices, including those that actively promote cultural diversity and the arts. • Arts and Disability Connect (ADC) is a new scheme open to artists with disabilities working in any art form. • Arts and health embraces a range of arts practices occurring primarily in healthcare settings, which bring together the skills and priorities of both arts and health professionals. • There are a number of agencies funded by the Arts Council which have a central role in supporting and encouraging older people to get involved in the arts. • The Arts Council offers a wide range of financial supports across artforms and arts practices, including arts and communities. • The Arts Council launched the Paying the Artist Policy in 2020 in line with their commitment to improving the living and working conditions of the artist. • A negotiation is underway with key national stakeholders to progress with investment agreements between the Strategic Banking Cooperation of Ireland and the arts sector to provide a specific Loan Guarantee for the arts sector to avail of.

Funding for the Arts Council in 2020 totals EU105m ($123m). This will increase to EU130m ($152m) in 2021. The significant year on year increase in funding reflects, in part, the key role that the Arts Council plays in supporting artists both during and in the eventual aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic environment.

This is an industry-wide, long-term plan, under the Creative Ireland Programme, developed to support the Government’s ambition to enable Ireland to become a global hub for the production of film, TV drama and animation. As referenced above, the Creative Ireland Programme is a five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy. The Audiovisual Action Plan is designed to deliver on the commitment in Pillar 4 to create an industry-wide plan to make Ireland a leader in the audiovisual sector and is intended to drive both increased investment and production across the sector. The Audiovisual Action Plan sets out the Government's high-level, strategic priorities over the next ten years to develop a vibrant media production and audiovisual sector bringing new economic opportunities across Ireland, through increased Government support. The Audiovisual Action Plan seeks to implement policy recommendations in 8 key areas: (1) Oversight of Industry by Steering Group (2) Section 481 Film Tax Credit (3) Strategic Review of Feature Film Funding (4) Funding (5) Skills Development (6) Regulatory Reform (7) Marketing (8) Other Supports and Reform To date, investment under the Plan has played an important role in supporting and stimulating local economies. The European Commission gave approval to the extension of the film tax credit, section 481 until 2024. In addition, the Regional Film Development Uplift credit was introduced which provides an additional tax credit over the four years from 2019 to 2022 to incentivise film production in areas outside of traditional production hubs. 2019 also saw additional funding for Screen Ireland to support increased investment in feature films and TV drama and in 2019 Screen Ireland opened the TV Drama Production funding scheme. Training and skills development have been a key focus under the AV plan. Screen Skills Ireland introduced new certified programmes including ‘Creative Leadership’ and ‘Advanced Producers’ (both in partnership with Technological University (TU) Dublin). Screen Skills Ireland now also play a key role in developing skills development plans in conjunction with producer companies as part of applications for section 481 film tax credit. In 2019, Ireland signed the revised Council of Europe Convention on Cinematographic Co-production which will facilitate partnerships on co-productions with other European countries. Other key achievements under the plan include the workshops on commercialisation of animation intellectual property and improved marketing of Ireland’s audiovisual sector.

A Digital Strategy for the Irish Language is due to be launched later in 2020. The Irish language enjoys great prominence in the cultural sector. For example, as part of the Seachtain na Gaeilge (Week of Irish) celebration, Irish versions of popular Irish musicians’ hit records have been published and this has been a great success since 2005. Link to the 2018 collection of songs https://cnag.ie/en/schools/school-resources/ceol.html Creative Ireland supported the establishment in October 2019 of Fighting Words Connemara, based at Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh (Pearse Cultural Centre) in Ros Muc, where the workshops take place through the Irish language . Fighting Words aims to help children and young people to discover and harness the power of their own imaginations and creative writing skills subsequently strengthening their resilience, creativity and successful shapers of their own lives. Classes take place in Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh three days a week. The National Folklore Collection UCD was placed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register as it has a large archive of oral tradition and cultural history and much of the material has been digitised and is freely available at www.duchas.ie. The Clár TechSpace project is a national project that aims to impact the lives of young people by becoming Ireland’s leading creative technology network for outcome focused youth development through the medium of Irish. TechSpace is a national network of digital media spaces in youth centres and schools. The network helps young people to create digital and technological material as they engage in activities such as digital film, web design, mobile app development and robotics, among others. Under the direction of trained instructors and mentors, young people can enhance their computer competency, while improving their self-confidence and social skills, all through the medium of Irish. Funding of €413,317 was provided in 2019 to expand the programme nationwide and also to hold a Tech Féile (Tech Celebration). Funding of €495,950 is approved for this year (2020) for the continuation and expansion of the Programme. The comprehensive TechSpace curriculum has now been translated into Irish and published in the first ever Irish language diary for teachers – we anticipate a great demand for the diaries within the TechSpace Network of educators. An Taibhdhearc is the Irish Language National Theatre and is based in Galway. Its website has an extensive archive of photographs and material pertaining to the theatre since its inception. http://antaibhdhearc.com/stair/cartlann/ A variety of schemes to support Irish language technology initiatives are being progressed and developed, including the development of machine translation systems by Dublin City University (DCU) and Trinity College Dublin, the text to speech synthesis project Abair.ie, digitisation projects in DCU and the Royal Irish Academy, LEX programme for the provision of terminology for EU institutions. These projects include Logainm.ie, Ainm.ie, Dúchas.ie LEX/IATE, the Rules of the Superior Courts and the Gaeltech projects in addition to the text to speech synthesiser project, www.Abair.ie, based in Trinity College, Dublin. Fáilte ar Líne (Welcome online) is an Irish language and culture online learning initiative developed by DCU, co-funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the 20 Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030. Fáilte ar Líne is accessible to everyone, anywhere in the world. Participants are able to progress from beginner to advanced courses and can complete a full degree in Irish language and culture entirely online. Launched in 2018, over 80,000 people have participated in the online courses thus far from 136 countries. The course from Dublin City University & FutureLearn is available at www.failteonline.ie ‘Foclóir Stairiúil na Gaeilge’ (historical dictionary of Irish) – an initiative of the Royal Irish Academy – is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and is one of the most ambitious linguistic research projects to be ever undertaken in Europe with over 70 million words already compiled and digitised, and freely accessible. Its primary objective is to establish an historical dictionary of Modern Irish (1600-2000) which will show the evolution of the language in the given period. It will be based on digitised corpora to include printed texts, texts from manuscripts and material from other sources. Grant funding of €920,183 was approved in 2019 for this project for the duration 2019-2024.

Screen Ireland supports various initiatives and partnerships aimed at developing and investing in Irish creative talent as well as supporting emerging and established voices. In response to Screen Ireland’s commitment to empowering and supporting female creative talent, the POV Low Budget Training & Production Scheme is a filmmaking initiative aimed at female writers and directors. The aim of this training scheme is to support the development and production of low budget feature films, and to enable distinct Irish female voices with a passion to tell stories on the big screen. In addition to supporting female filmmaking talent, the POV scheme is about creating opportunities for cast and crew. Cine4 is a funding initiative, supported by TG4 (the Irish language channel), Screen Ireland and Broadcasting Authority of Ireland partnership, to develop original feature films in the Irish language. It encourages strong storytelling, visual flair and high production values appropriate for the big screen. Spotlight is a funding initiative aimed at discovering and developing fresh and exciting screenwriting talent in Ireland. The scheme is intended as an opportunity for new writers to develop a feature film screenplay, with guidance and mentorship from leading industry figures at the very beginning of their careers. RTÉ (the national broadcaster) in association with Screen Ireland support two initiatives to develop new drama and comedy series for younger audiences, which are designed to develop emerging creative Irish talent and have the potential to showcase Irish talent on the global stage. The international co-production development fund is a funding partnership between Creative BC and Screen Ireland, which provides support to five motion picture projects, each with Canadian and Irish producers. Screen Ireland supports the annual Ireland Week in Los Angeles, as the international spotlight is firmly placed on Irish culture at the week-long event.

The BAI archiving funding scheme was instigated to address the absence of a national audio visual archiving policy. The Scheme seeks to contribute to the preservation of lreland's broadcasting heritage and a record of lrish culture, heritage and experience by supporting the development of an archiving culture in the lrish broadcasting sector. The Scheme concerns programme material and advertisements broadcast in whole or in part, or recorded for broadcast, on radio and/or television. The BAI administered three funding rounds under the first Archiving Scheme, which expired in April 2016. Following a review process, a second Archiving Scheme was launched in June 2018 and will run until 2022.

Work completed in 2016 included a project undertaken by TG4 to digitise, catalogue and make accessible approximately 1,400 hours of music and documentary programming, and The Radharc Trust’s project to preserve production material, documentation and photographs generated by the Radharc productions from 1964–1997. Projects funded with the support of the Scheme in 2017 included the Irish Film Archive’s Adverts Project, which saw the conservation and digitisation of a selection of television advertisements from the 1960s to the 1980s. This project has been made available on the Irish Film Institute’s Player and provides a fascinating look at Irish consumer society and culture over three decades. Separately, the RTÉ News Collection Archive from Ireland’s national broadcaster was launched in October 2017. With funding support from the Archiving Scheme, this project digitised a selection of videotape recordings of RTÉ News from 1985-1999. Accessible online via RTÉ Archives, the selection captures a range of footage, from historic news stories to those more light-hearted in nature. In 2018 the funding round focused on the safeguarding of programme material threatened by fragile physical condition or soon-to-be obsolete formats. In December 2018 six projects were awarded funding under the Archiving Scheme. Applications were structured on strategic approaches to the safeguarding of valuable cultural content and, in particular, to developing and adhering to internationally accepted archiving standards, building capacity and knowledge and providing ease of access for the public to collections. A partnership approach was also evident across a number of the applications, which is encouraged by the Scheme and met with one of the main objectives, that of developing an integrated approach to archiving. In 2019, the scheme focused on the archiving of programme material with the specific objective of the preservation of a historic record of Irish culture, heritage and experience and, in particular, that which safeguards historic material that is threatened by fragile physical condition or soon to be obsolete formats. Thirteen applications were received in total, from which six projects were awarded €1.89 million. In 2020, common with the previous rounds under the Scheme, the latest round focused on the safeguarding of programme material threatened by fragile physical condition or soon to be obsolete formats. Eleven applications were received in total, from which five projects were awarded funding of €1.34 million.

Si oui, quelles sont les principales conclusions/recommandations ?: 

ln the last quarter of 2016, the BAI undertook a review of the Scheme, which encompassed the following:

I. Examination of the operation, effectiveness and impact of the Scheme in the context of its objectives, both internally and externally;
The findings show that the impact of the Scheme has been positive and in particular, the cultural benefit is noteworthy in that the Scheme has facilitated the safeguarding of material of historical and cultural value that would otherwise have been lost

II. Identification of recommendations for revisions to the Scheme;
The findings also show that the Scheme has been effective in achieving its objectives. This includes safeguarding broadcast material of heritage value and also, importantly, encouraging and promoting archiving activities within the wider broadcasting sector including amongst the independent community and commercial broadcasters and the independent production sector. The access to the archived broadcast material was viewed as critical and a positive aspect of the Scheme.

III. Identification of proposed operational improvements in the context of the current Scheme
The overall findings reveal that stakeholders who engaged with the Scheme had a positive experience. However, there were four common opinions across the feedback for actions that could improve the operation of the Scheme:
a) More supporting information about the Scheme should be provided;
b) The application process should be streamlined;
c) More detailed feedback should be provided in the BAI's assessment reports of applications; and
d) The grant agreement process should be streamlined.

The Arts Council understands arts participation to include a broad range of practice where individuals or groups collaborate with skilled artists to make or interpret art. Arts participation is a core value across all areas of the Arts Council's work, as they are committed to increasing public engagement in the arts in Ireland.

Arts Participation Arts participation is a core value for the Arts Council in its commitment to increasing public access, participation and engagement in the arts. It is broken down into five different strands, each with its own set of knowledge, expertise and cross-sector partnerships. These include: Arts and Health; Arts and Disability; Cultural Diversity and the Arts; Arts and Communities; and Arts and Older People. The Arts Council funds a number of key organisations and agencies that have a central role in supporting these strands of work. The Arts Council EHRD Policy 2019 In 2019 the Arts Council launched their Equality, Human Rights and Diversity (EHRD) Policy and Strategy which builds on their work areas in Arts and Disability, Cultural Diversity and Arts Policy and Dignity at Work. Through this policy they have committed to taking actions over the course of the coming years to actively deepen their understanding of inequalities in the arts and develop substantive ways to address them. Cultural Diversity The Arts Council understands the term ‘Cultural Diversity’, as it applies to the arts, to encompass inclusive arts programming and, most particularly, intercultural arts practice that involves artists and/or communities from a range of national, ethnic or cultural groups. The Arts Council offers a wide range of financial supports across artforms and arts practices, including those that actively promote cultural diversity and the arts. They include bursaries, projects, and travel and training awards as well as a specific strand in the Local Partnership Scheme, which aims to foster intercultural capacity at local and national level through strategic collaboration among local authorities and with arts and non-arts organisations. In addition, the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is externally managed by CSO Create, provides funding to enable artists and diverse groups to work alongside each other in the making of collaborative art. The Connect Mentoring Programme, an Arts Council-funded initiative developed by Create and Common Ground, included a specific arts and cultural diversity mentoring award. Arts and Disability Arts and Disability Connect (ADC) is a new scheme open to artists with disabilities working in any art form. The scheme is designed to support artists with disabilities to make new and ambitious work. It offers artists the opportunity to: connect with other practitioners or venues; make a change in their practice; ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale; reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring and training. Arts and Health Arts and health embraces a range of arts practices occurring primarily in healthcare settings, which bring together the skills and priorities of both arts and health professionals. It can involve all artforms, and incorporate a variety of approaches, including conventional arts production and presentation, arts participation and environmental enhancement. Arts and Older People There are a number of agencies funded by the Arts Council which have a central role in supporting and encouraging older people to get involved in the arts. One such organisation is Age and Opportunity, which coordinates the Bealtaine Festival, an annual celebration of creativity in older age, which takes place around the country in May. Other Arts Council funding is channelled through venues, local authority arts officers, festivals, and production companies, many of which co-ordinate high-quality arts programmes directly targeting older people as participants and audiences. Arts and Communities The Arts Council offers a wide range of financial supports across artforms and arts practices, including arts and communities. These include bursaries, projects, and travel and training awards as well as specific schemes such as; artist in the community scheme; visual artists in prisons scheme; and writers in prisons scheme. Paying the Artist Policy 2020 The Arts Council launched the Paying the Artist Policy in 2020 in line with their commitment to improving the living and working conditions of the artist as set out in their Making Great Art Work Strategy. With this policy they seek to create an environment in which artists can make work of excellence and ambition and be remunerated appropriately. It provides a set of best-practice principles for all those working in the arts to aspire to. It asserts the Arts Council’s expectations of those they fund, of those they work with and of the Arts Council itself. The policy sets out a series of actions they will undertake across the areas of research, developmental activities, funding related requirements and advocacy. Other Initiatives ESRI Study The Arts Council commissioned a study, carried out by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), which looked at arts and cultural participation among children and young people. The study, entitled Arts and Cultural Participation among Children and Young People (Insights from the Growing Up in Ireland Study, was published in 2016 (http://www.artscouncil.ie/uploadedFiles/Arts-and-cultural-particiption-GUI.pdf). The knowledge gained from this report is fundamental in the Arts Council in planning and providing for children and young people. Arts in Education Portal The Arts in Education Portal (http://www.artsineducation.ie) was launched by the Arts Council in May 2015. This portal is a key national digital resource for arts and education practice in Ireland. Underpinning the development of the portal is a strong and implicit shared belief amongst all stakeholders of the intrinsic value of the arts in the lives of children. Its vision was to establish a structure through which the arts-in-education community could develop good collaborative practice and where arts education will be supported, developed and enhanced. Creative Schools Creative Schools is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme and is led by the Arts Council. The initiative develops and celebrates the arts and creativity in schools in every region across the country. It establishes a range of collaborative opportunities for schools and develops and strengthens the relationships between schools and the broader cultural and community infrastructure within which they operate. The long term aim is for every school to be supported to fully embrace the arts and creativity, ensuring a positive experience and strong outcomes for children and young people. International Co-operation The Arts Council acknowledges that many Irish artists and arts organisations work, or plan to work, in an international context and in keeping with its’ ongoing policy of supporting international co-operation, the Arts Council oversees three distinct programmes of activity in the area of international arts: the Creative Europe Desk Ireland – Culture Office; the Venice Biennale; Mobility of Artists and the provision of awards to support international collaboration. In Ireland, the Creative Europe Desk comprises 3 offices: the Culture Office; MEDIA Office Dublin; and MEDIA Office Galway. The Arts Council is the designated host of the culture office, the role which is to promote the EU Creative Europe Programme 2014-2020 and to provide information, advice and technical assistance to any cultural operators in Ireland interested in applying for funding under the programme. In 2016, the Arts Council piloted a Co-funding Award to support the costs associated with the Irish elements of successful arts projects under the Creative Europe Programme. Following the success of this pilot initiative, the award is being offered on an annual basis and is serving to encourage important participation in the Creative Europe Programme. The Arts Council supports the mobility of artists and arts professionals and offers a Travel and Training Award across a broad range of artforms and practices. The primary purpose of the award is to support individuals who wish to avail of training and other professional development opportunities abroad. It also supports individuals or organisations who wish to invite specialists from abroad to deliver high-level training or mentoring in Ireland. Loan Guarantee Facility A negotiation is underway with key national stakeholders to progress with investment agreements between the Strategic Banking Cooperation of Ireland and the arts sector to provide a specific Loan Guarantee for the arts sector to avail of.

Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture has been in development over a number of years with many events taking place in the period 2017-2019. Galway 2020 was just over a month into its official designation as 2020 European Capital of Culture when public health restrictions were introduced. Up to this point, many events including musical performances, talks with leading authors and a major exhibition for children on the Irish language had taken place with many of these events involving European and international artists. While the cultural programme has been restructured as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on public events and gatherings, many projects are still proceeding mainly through online platforms and limited physical attendance. Over two thirds of the projects proceeding under the cultural programme involve international artists who have worked closely with Irish artists over a number of years to develop and now deliver.

The Regional Film Development Uplift

Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 
A key challenge in promoting the audiovisual sector across Ireland is the additional costs of filming outside the key urban areas (and particularly the Dublin area). Measures are underway to address this imbalance in the hope of unlocking access to a wider variety of locations than presently exist and to develop skills and crews across regional locations in Ireland. This supports the National Development Plan 2018 - 2027 which aims to drive Ireland’s long term economic, environmental and social progress across all parts of the country over the next decade. In July 2019, the Film (Regional Film Development Uplift) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 were published giving effect to the Regional Film Development Uplift (“Regional Uplift”) measure which was announced as part of Budget 2019. The measure was subject to EU State aid approval and on receipt of this approval, commenced with effect from 17 July 2019. This will contribute to the strategic aims of building the audiovisual industry in regions outside of the areas in which it is currently concentrated by providing for an additional tax credit (in addition to the standard 32% tax credit) to be made available to productions being substantially undertaken in “assisted regions”. “Assisted regions” are areas designated as such under the Regional Aid Guidelines (RAGs) map. In addition, to qualify for the relief, producer companies will be required to show that training and skills development opportunities are provided to individuals habitually resident in the area and that such training will address a skills deficit in the area. Following changes announced in Budget 2021, the Regional Uplift will be available for 5 years with 5% additional tax credit available in 2019, 2020 and 2021, 3% in 2022, and 2% in 2023. The aid is to provide additional support to incentivise the development of the audiovisual sector in areas outside the current main production hubs which should ensure a more equal spread of production activity across the country and contribute towards stimulating the growth of audiovisual activity in new regions in Ireland

Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 
Screen Ireland (SI) is committed to supporting and facilitating an increase in the level of female writers, producers and directors in line with its Six Point Plan on Gender Equality. 2019 built on the ongoing efforts to support increased female participation for the last number of years and the aim is that 2020 will see a further increase. The POV Production and Training Scheme for female talent is aimed at delivering on Screen Ireland’s commitment to achieving 50/50 gender parity within the Irish screen industries both in front of and behind the camera. This scheme provides funding and training specifically for female initiated and driven films. In 2020, 4 POV projects will go into production. Screen Ireland will continue to offer enhanced production funding for female initiated and driven feature films. 15 projects have been selected from 195 applications for the Spotlight scheme. Out of these projects, 53% have female writers attached. This scheme was specifically targeted at diverse and underrepresented voices and this is reflected in the choice of projects. Linking funding decisions to greater gender equality is already paying dividends and provides a positive model to replicate in other areas of strategic importance to the industry. In order to incentivise and reward positive change and support the industry in a continued and sustained era of growth, it is the intention of Screen Ireland to develop funding criteria for productions based on the following guiding principles; equality, diversity and inclusion, career & skills development, dignity in the workplace, and climate and sustainability. Screen Ireland have created several new schemes to help production companies during the Covid-19 crisis. Within the applications, producers are asked to supply a statement of diversity, inclusion, and gender to emphasise the importance of working with a diverse team.

Screen Ireland’s target of a 5% increase for 2019 was met. A target of a 5% year on year increase has also been set for 2020. In Q1 2020 (most recent stats), 40 applications had female talent attached (excluding producers) which is at the same level as the total applications in 2019. The number of successful applications with female talent attached (excluding producers) was 17 which is 3% lower than the total stats for 2019. Screen Ireland remains confident that the 2020 targets will be achieved.

Dr. Catherine Day, former Secretary General of the European Commission chairs Ireland’s Citizens’ Assembly to advance gender equality. The Assembly has been asked to bring forward proposals that: • challenge the remaining barriers and social norms and attitudes that facilitate gender discrimination towards girls and boys, women and men; • identify and dismantle economic and salary norms that result in gender inequalities, and reassess the economic value placed on work traditionally held by women; • seek to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in the workplace, politics and public life; • recognise the importance of early years parental care and seek to facilitate greater work-life balance; • examine the social responsibility of care and women and men’s co-responsibility for care, especially within the family; and • scrutinise the structural pay inequalities that result in women being disproportionately represented in low pay sectors. The Assembly will report to the Houses of the Oireachtas (Irish Parliament) which, on receipt of the Report, will refer it for consideration to a relevant Committee of both Houses.

In January 2020, the Citizen’s Assembly on Gender Equality held its inaugural meeting. This was followed by a meeting on gender stereotypes and the family in February. A public consultation process was initiated to seek views/recommendations on the following themes; • Gender norms and stereotypes • Work: Occupational segregation by gender, gender discrimination and the gender pay gap • Care, paid and unpaid, as a social and family responsibility • Women’s access to, and representation in, public life and decision making • Where does gender inequality impact most? Responses to the public consultation will be taken into consideration in the development of the agenda for Assembly weekends and as part of the Citizens' deliberations. An online seminar for citizens was held on Saturday 4th July 2020 to provide them with an opportunity to reconnect with each other, and to give initial consideration to the public submissions and how Covid 19 has impacted on their mandate. The Assembly met virtually on the 17th October 2020. This meeting focussed on the following topic from the Oireachtas resolution to ‘seek to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in the workplace, politics and public life.’ The meeting included various speakers discussing topics including; • Gender Equality, leadership & politics • Gender Balance in Elected Office in Europe • Women in Media And included panel discussions on; • Leadership case studies and suggested recommendations • Possible policy changes

Report of the Inter-Departmental Group on Gender Balance on State Boards - Options and Recommendations for Government

Nom de l’agence chargée de la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure: 
Government Departments
Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 
In 2011 the Irish Government introduced new arrangements to increase openness and transparency in the selection of appointees to State Boards and in 2014 published guidelines setting out requirements which would apply to all State Board appointments. These guidelines incorporate the long standing target to achieve 40% representation of women and of men on State Boards. With a view to accelerating progress in achieving this target, the Government agreed in 2018 to the convening of an inter-departmental group to identify and report on best practices which could be adopted across Government. The interdepartmental group published their report in March 2019. The Ministers would then bring the report to Government with recommendations on actions to be taken by Government departments and agencies and an accompanying implementation plan. The purpose of the Inter-Departmental group were set out in its terms of reference, as follows: • identify best practices (whether already in use in Departments or not) aimed at accelerating progress towards the target of 40% representation of each gender on all State boards, considering measures mentioned in Action 4.7 of the National Strategy for Women and Girls such as engagement with external nominating bodies and awareness raising among eligible groups of women; • consider how such practices could be mainstreamed across Government Departments and public bodies; • recommend actions in respect of those practices that could be taken by Government Departments and public bodies; and • propose an implementation plan to give effect to its recommendations. Four key themes emerged from discussions of the group, and these provided a focus for the Inter-Departmental Group’s subsequent work: • Measures were needed to encourage women to apply for Board positions in greater numbers. • The Inter-Departmental Group would consider ways to encourage consideration of gender representation in appointing board members and chairpersons. • Low representation of women among candidates put forward by nominating bodies and among ex-officio appointments needed to be addressed. • The Inter-Departmental Group would also consider ways to encourage further engagement by Departments with nominating bodies with a view to increase the diversity and skills mix more broadly on State Boards, which indirectly could contribute to greater gender balance.

The Public Appointments Service (PAS) which operates under the Guidelines on Appointments to State Boards has played a positive role, with the PAS process achieving 51% of appointments to female candidates in 2018 and 53% since the establishment of the process in 2014. The PAS State Boards process is constantly evolving, developing stronger recognition of the State Boards brand in key sectors with a focus on gender and regional representation across candidate pools. As a direct result of this engagement process, we have seen an increase in the number of women applying for vacancies on State Boards. The Inter-Departmental Group on Gender Balance on State Boards have published their Report which includes the following conclusions; • Targeted actions by Government Departments, external nominating bodies, the Public Appointments Service and by chairs and members of State Boards should enable all State boards to achieve the 40% target for gender balanced Board membership. • the achievement of better gender balance on State Boards will require Government Departments and Public Agencies to give greater visibility to this requirement both so that external nominating bodies are aware of it when nominating potential candidates and so that eligible women have greater awareness of potential vacancies. Following consideration by Government of its recommendations, the Department of Justice will prepare an implementation plan, in consultation with the State Board Liaison Officers of each Department, of actions to be implemented by all relevant public bodies. The Inter-Departmental Group concluded that implementation of the following recommendations would address the factors which are leading to gender imbalances in the membership of certain State Boards and provided suggested approaches under each of the headings; • Reporting • Outreach • Terms and Conditions • Highlight Gender Balance when making appointments • Governance and Culture • Nominations by external nominating bodies • Emphasis diversity and skills mix on Boards • Training Interventions

The policy (launched March 2018) outlines the Arts Council’s determination to proactively combat discrimination and address exclusion in the arts in Ireland, with reference to ten grounds of discrimination, of which gender is one. It is accompanied by an initial 3-year action plan where there are several general actions that have bearing for gender inequality and two specific gender related ones: 1. Publish aggregate information on award applicants and recipients with an immediate focus on gender and in the long-term further fields as appropriate. 2. Require Strategically Funded organisations to ensure their boards are gender balanced. Data is being collected and published on both these actions.

In terms of individual awards there has always been a higher number of female applicants and recipients. However, there has tended to be gender dominance within specific artforms (e.g Music, Traditional arts). Since the introduction of the policy there has been a positive shift in this dominant trend but it will need to be assessed over some years.

Professional Artists on Jobseeker’s Allowance

Nom de l’agence chargée de la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure: 
Department of Social Protection
Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 
In 2019, the Government announced the extension, on a permanent basis, of a pilot social welfare scheme to self-employed artists including those working in the performing arts, film and architecture. The expanded scheme recognises the unique creative circumstances of artists in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance. From September 2019, self-employed artists in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance for the first year they are out of work will now be able to focus on their artistic efforts and develop their portfolio, rather than having to participate in the normal labour market to make ends meet. This scheme was designed to make it easier for writers and artists to access Jobseeker’s Allowance during times when their incomes are low and to provide support to develop income opportunities. This new professional status is a real and symbolic recognition of the status of professional artists in Ireland and recognises their contribution to Irish culture within the state support systems. Artists eligible to apply include actors, theatre and film directors, dancers, opera singers, set, costume and lighting designers, musicians, composers, choreographers, architects and street performers.

Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 
The review of the pilot scheme (which had a more limited eligibility criteria) revealed that over 100 artists and writers availed of the scheme. Analysis showed that the vast majority of the artists on the pilot, (over 87%) who subsequently exited from the Jobseekers Allowance scheme do so within the first year. Feedback from the organisations representing visual artists and writers was positive. It was clear to them that the State recognises the vital contribution professional artists make to Irish society but also understands the economic hardships many artists face as periods of unemployment can be a typical feature for them as they try to build up their work. As a result of the review findings it was decided that the scheme will be established as a permanent scheme in its own right and will include other professional artistic disciplines. The derogation from activation for the first 12 months will help the artists to exit Jobseekers Allowance having had the opportunity to grow their self-employment in their artistic field.
