funders & partners
We couldn’t do this without you.
Since 2007 our funders and partners have played an enormous role in helping us to grow and flourish. We appreciate their continuing support. Our principle funders are Dublin City Council, the NEIC and the Arts Council Small Festivals section.

We are starting a Five Lamps Arts Friends Scheme in September 2020 please look out for it on our news page.
Dublin North East inner city
DCC Central Office
The North East Inner City (NEIC) Initiative is a Government programme to oversee the long term social and economic regeneration of the area. The 2017 Mulvey Report Dublin North East Inner City – Creating a Brighter Future acknowledged that “the Arts and its artistic history and activities in the area needs to be recognised and encouraged” and referenced the value of a whole community based Arts Festival as part of the regeneration process. On that basis the NEIC Programme Office has provided increased annual financial and other supports to the Five Lamps Arts Festival in recognition of the contribution that this long established community arts festival has made to this area and its people over the years.
“We are committed to supporting the voluntary Board of the Five Lamps Arts into the future in its tireless efforts to promote all that is positive about the north east inner city including the constantly evolving wealth of artistic talent and creativity that exists here.”
Dublin Port company
Since 1997 the day to day running of Dublin Port is managed by Dublin Port Company (DPC) which traces its 300 year old history back to 1708. Dublin Port Company is a self-financing, private limited company wholly-owned by the State, whose business is to manage Dublin Port. DPC set out in its Masterplan (2012 – 2040) how its aims to improve capacity of the Port with a focus on reintegrating with Dublin City. In 2018 a Port Heritage and Communication’s Department was created to assist in the implementation of the keys aims of the Masterplan and this new team are involved in a variety of Corporate Social Responsibility, Tangible and Intangible Soft Values, various Port Heritage Projects and developing the Archive.
