Creative Youth Plan Investing in the Future
What We Do
We support the mainstreaming of culture and creativity in our lives, our communities and our society.
One of the great advantages of Creative Ireland is that we are required to be imaginative in what we do, to embody what we espouse. That means we encourage ourselves and others to think differently, to try things out, to be innovative, to be solutions-focused. Quite simply, we enjoy and value being creative and enabling others to be so too.
Ireland is a seedbed of imagination where ideas are born and flourish, an island on the edge. From Seamus Heaney to Sally Rooney, Hozier and The Gloaming to Simone Rocha, generations of Irish artists and creatives have forged a new understanding of Ireland and Irish creativity.
In international fashion houses, new media companies, publishing houses, theatres, cinemas and cities, Irish artists, architects, software developers and product designers are global innovators and change-makers.
