The 41st General Assembly of Aosdána will not take place in 2021. It is hoped that the 41st General Assembly will take place in Spring 2022. A decision has been taken not to hold the General Assembly due to continuing uncertainty on gatherings. In its place a postal vote will take place for the election of new members as was the case in 2020. All 246 current members will receive a postal vote by 2 November for return no later than 12 November. The ballot count will take place in the Arts Council and it is expected new members will be announced mid November 2021.
