This chapter discusses the results of a study of the music industry in Dublin to highlight the social value of ‘grassroots’ music-making. It considers how various forms and practices of popular music are addressed and represented within agendas for the arts and in the development of cultural policy. It looks at the Arts Council of Ireland's funding policies, how popular music is valued and supported by funding bodies and how views of the music industry are integrated into institutional understandings of popular music practice. The chapter also explores how the music industry is popularly characterised as a self-sustaining economy, the debates between different arts organisations over the ‘use value’ of the arts, and the ‘fine arts’, ‘cultural industries’ and ‘community arts’ models in relation to cultural policy in the latter part of the twentieth century.

Keywords:   Ireland, music industry, popular music, funding, cultural policy, Arts Council of Ireland, arts organisations, fine arts, community arts, cultural industries
