Monaghan County Council wishes to announce a new grant scheme as part of the Creative Ireland Programme 2017-2022.
Monaghan County Council has developed a five year Cultural and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022 in association with Creative Ireland. Our vision is to maximise opportunities for engagement in culture and creativity, to nurture our creative talent, whilst embedding the individual, social and economic benefits. Each year we wish to develop a programme of work/events which corresponds with one or more of the strategy priorities.
What is the purpose of Monaghan County Council’s Creative Ireland grant scheme?
The key objective of the Fund is to provide support to local community groups; artistic and creative practitioners; event organisers and those involved in creative activities and projects, to encourage creativity, collaboration and cultural participation.
We are now inviting applications for the 2018 funding scheme.
Funding for 2018 is available under two themes:
· Bliain na Gaeilge
· Year of Cultural Heritage
