Harnessing the creative potential of our people and communities is a cornerstone of the Creative Ireland Programme. In each of the 31 local authorities, the Creative Ireland Programme has established a Culture and Creativity Team which brings together local expertise in arts, heritage, libraries, enterprise and community engagement, to foster collaboration and spark new initiatives. A local Creative Ireland Co-ordinator has also been appointed for each local authority. Find your local co-ordinator here.
With the help of local artists, creatives, cultural and heritage organisations and community groups across the country, each local authority has created a new five-year Culture and Creativity Strategy 2023–2027. These are designed to enable people are working together to transform their communities, their lives and their environment through creativity.
