Save the date – June 23rd – Cruinniú na nÓg celebrating creativity in young people
Do you have an idea for an event for children and young people celebrating culture and creativity that you would like to see happen?
Saturday June 23rd was established this year under the Creative Ireland programme as a national day of creativity for children and young people. The model is similar to Culture Night but in contrast to Culture Night, events can be held during the day, making them much more accessible to children and young people. While the focus of most events will be on Saturday 23rd itself, events can also happen on the day before for those groups, especially schools, that meet during the week.
Call for applications - Creative Ireland Open Call
The Creative Ireland Open Call is a countywide open call to community groups, organisations, venues, artists, writers, performers, archaeologists, historians, archivists and everyone involved in the culture and creative sectors to develop high quality projects and programmes that enable groups and individuals to realise their full creative potential and develop and encourage greater access, knowledge and appreciation of the arts, culture and heritage.
Applications must be developed by a community group, venue or organisation in partnership with individuals with professional expertise in any creative or cultural arena such as visual or performing arts, literature, heritage or other culture area.
Leitrim County Council publishes Culture & Creativity Strategy 2018 - 2022
At its last meeting, the members of Leitrim County Council adopted the council's first Culture & Creativity Strategy. The vision of Creative Ireland is that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential. The Creative Ireland Vision for Leitrim is to nurture and foster creative expression in all its diversity; embrace and welcome new ideas; and create the conditions to help turn those ideas into reality and embed creativity into all aspects of the social, economic and cultural life of Leitrim. The new strategy sets out the priorities to achieve that objective in a comprehensive plan and as well as achieving that under the Creative Ireland programme, a central purpose of the strategy is to act as guidance and a key influencer in the development of all cultural policies and corporate planning developed during the tenure of the Creative Ireland programme.
