Application deadline: 3 June, midnight.
The Creative Ireland Programme is a five year all-of-Government initiative to place creativity at the centre of public policy. It is guided by a vision that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise their full creative potential. Under the programme, each local authority has developed a Culture and Creativity Strategy. To view the Leitrim Creative Ireland Strategy please check Leitrim County council website http://www.leitrimcoco.ie/ .
Applications must be based in Leitrim County and developed by a community group, venue or organisation in partnership with professional practitioners in any creative or cultural arena such as visual or performing arts, literature, heritage or any other cultural area. A group may make the initial approach to a culture/creativity practitioner with a view to developing a project or visa-versa.
The nominal amount awarded to any one project will typically be between €500 and €5,000. While there is no fixed number of awards, there will generally be a larger number of lesser value awards and a small number of higher value ones. The quantity and value of awards will depend on available funding, number of applicants and the quality of applications.
A series of three public meetings are being held to provide advice and assistance to help ensure projects being planned can achieve the best possible experience for everyone involved. Whether you are a member of a community or youth group interested in developing a project, or a practitioner who would like to work with a group, these meetings will be of interest to you.
