QSS is supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland through their Annual Funding Programme. We also receive funding from Belfast City Council via their Cultural Multi Annual Grant (2024-2026). Both of these funding streams help cover our core operational costs.

Support for specific projects or events is secured separately. Notably, our 2023/24 gallery programme was enabled by the Esme Mitchell Trust and the Enkalon Foundation whilst out 40th anniversary programme of events (September to December 2024) is funded by an Arts & Heritage award from Belfast City Council.
