Studio NI is the largest Arts & Culture group in the northern half of the island of Ireland. Only "Visual Arts Ireland" has a comparable membership, and it is an all-Ireland body. For the area it covers (from Donegal to Dublin), Studio-NI is the largest group in existence.
The vast majority of Studio NI members are freelancers. Unfortunately, The Powers That Be tend to limit their interest to a small number of big-name companies, ignoring the silent majority. If you want TPTB to take you seriously, if you want your voice to be heard, then start with active participation as a Voting Member of Studio-NI.
Our vast membership and established non-profit status make the Studio NI Group eligible for hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of Government grants, from both sides of the border. The administration of the projects funded by these grants is overseen by the Committee. If you want to vote in the Committee election at the AGM, or if you want to stand for election to the Committee, you must register for a Voting membership.
Remember, this is thousands of pounds worth of YOUR projects that we are voting on!
