Seed Grants Programme

Supported by the Creative Ireland Programme, the IHF Seed Grants programme piloted in early 2021 and was extended through to 2023. The aim was to inspire and support the work of groups, organisations or individuals who wish to mark in some tangible way their response to the universal realities of dying, death, and bereavement.

To date, 55 projects have been supported with micro grants, expertise, and resources enabling communities of place or interest to develop their own tools and / or articulate their needs. Awardees include individual artists, writers, nursing homes, secondary schools, community / voluntary groups, clubs, disability support centres, local choirs, and hospitals. Priority was given to creative initiatives that take innovative approaches to reflection and remembrance.  Enjoy exploring them below.
