Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022

Wexford’s history is packed with Vikings, Normans and Republican rebels – the modern county’s vibrant spirit reflects its rich cultural heritage.

Today the sunny southeastern county is known for the world-famous Wexford Opera Festival and critically-acclaimed authors, including John Banville and Colm Tóibín. Wexford’s creative community uses every opportunity to produce amazing works and is always raring for the next challenge.

Creative Ireland’s five-year programme focuses on identity, culture and citizenship. Wexford’s journey exploring these themes – already close to the county’s heart – began with its plans in 2017.

Wexford’s creative community uses every opportunity to produce amazing works and is always raring for the next challenge.

The county’s Culture and Creativity Strategy is enhancing lots of Wexford’s current cultural highlights, including the 15-week Living Arts primary school course and the inclusive Arts Ability programme for people with mental health, sensory or intellectual disabilities.
