Carlow's County Plan

Carlow

Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022

With a nationally-recognised progressive arts infrastructure and proud bilingual status, Carlow is a county that makes investment in creativity a top priority. Carlow is home to Ireland’s largest music education programme, Music Generation, and its rich network of cultural amenities - from world-class arts centre VISUAL to outstanding museum and library services, and nationally recognised Youth Arts initiatives - contribute greatly to a vibrant and distinct Creative Ireland Culture and Creativity Strategy.

Residents and visitors to Carlow since 2017 have enjoyed initiatives such as the Carlow Arts Festival. Now in its 39th year, this fabulous June event at Carlow College St. Patrick’s will incorporate visual art, theatre, music, dance, spectacle, and more to bring culture and the arts to domestic and international audiences alike.
