2022 Creative Ireland Programme Creative Communities initiative

The ambition of the Creative Ireland Programme is to mainstream creativity in the life of the nation.  Participation in cultural and creative activity promotes individual, community and national wellbeing.

Creative Communities is a collaboration, between central and local government, between culture and industry, between artists, policy makers and communities.

This funding includes planning for an enhanced Cruinniú na nÓg – Ireland’s national day celebrating young people’s creativity in June 2022. There will be projects around Creativity in Older Age with opportunities for older people to participate in creative activities. And, Creative Climate Action projects in partnership with Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications will use the talents of artists and the wider creative industries to connect people with profound changes happening in our environment, society and economy arising from climate change.
