Creative Ireland Programme 2017-2022

What is the Creative Ireland Programme?

Creative Ireland is the Government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016. It is a five-year all-of-government initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy.

The programme has five pillars:

1. Enabling the Creative Potential of Every Child – A key objective of Pillar 1 is that by 2022 every child in Ireland will have access to tuition and participation in art, music, drama and coding.

2. Enabling Creativity in Every Community – The primary objective of this pillar is citizen engagement with their County Culture and Creativity Plans.

3. Investing in our Creative and Cultural Infrastructure – High quality infrastructure is critical for a vibrant arts and culture sector, and investment in this infrastructure underpins social cohesion and supports strong and sustainable economic growth.

4. Ireland as a Centre of Excellence in Media Production – The long-term objective of this pillar is to elevate the creative industries including: media, architecture, design, digital technology, fashion, food and crafts, fostering innovation in enterprise.

5. Unifying our Global Reputation – This pillar will involve many Government Departments, state agencies and local government in promoting our country on the international stage in terms of culture and creativity, striving to increase our influence in the world, with direct and indirect economic and social benefits.

Cruinniú na nÓg – Saturday June 15th

A programme of free creative activities for under 18’s as part of the Creative Ireland programme initiative supported by Monaghan County Council and RTE.

We are calling on all children and young people to fire up their imaginations and take part in one of the free Cruinniú na nÓg events that will take place around the county on Saturday 15th June 2019.

Now in its second year, Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates and encourages participation by children and young people in creative activities in their local neighbourhoods and communities.  Led by the local Creative Monaghan Culture and Creativity Team, with huge support from local artists, arts organisations, creative practitioners and community festivals, activities include everything from drama, graffiti art, music, dance, storytelling, art, crafts to exhibitions. With a strong emphasis on participation, activities are specially designed to spark an interest and encourage the inner creative in children to try something new or fulfil a secret ambition!
