Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions
I thank the Deputy. It is my intention that the pilot scheme will be open to eligible artists and creative arts sector workers. The process for recipients will be finalised through the stakeholder engagement I mentioned, which should happen next month. I can confirm it will be a non-competitive process and people will be chosen randomly. My intention is to have a number of streams, such as professional artists, emerging and developing artists and arts workers.
This will be subject to two further stakeholder engagements in the coming weeks. This consultation is key in that regard.
