Capital Grant Renovation
In 2017 IACC was awarded a capital grant of €350,000 from The Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. This project is a flagship project with match funding from Limerick City & County Council. We explored many different options in how to best use this grant, with feasibility studies and different venues considered. We decided to renovate our existing premises with a 22 year lease from our landlord and stay where we are.
Of course at IACC we dream big, and in 2018 we also did an amazing feasibility study with Through and Around, in partnership with JFOC architects and Limerick City & County Council, of a National Centre of Aerial Arts building. This is a long term dream, and we are in talks with partners, 2030/40 plans for Limerick and Clare.
We are delighted that renovations began in May 2023 with the demolition of the existing internal structures, followed by the insulation of the walls, as seen in the photos below.
