Cruinniú na nÓg

Ireland’s national day of creativity for children and young people – a chance for everyone under 18 to unleash their creativity and participate! Get ready for Cruinniu 2020 - Saturday June 13th

Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship of the Creative Youth Plan – which celebrates and encourages children and young people’s participation in activities such as art, music, coding and theatre workshops, performances, exhibitions, readings, film screenings and much, much more.

And all of this for free – and in your own community.

Cruinniu na nOg – Kerry

Cruinniú na nÓg 2019

With hundreds of free events, workshops, exhibitions and performances, and a special focus on starter workshops to encourage young people to try something new. With everything from shield making to game coding, Japanese kite making to dark-room photography and tapestry weaving, Cruinniú na nÓg is an opportunity for children and young people to fulfil a secret creative ambition or showcase their inner creative hero!

While only starting in 2018, it has already become a firm fixture in our cultural calendar.

The programme of events is decided in your community (again the voice of the child is listened to) by the Culture and Creativity teams across the 31 Local Authorities – who every year curate a really impressive range of events for all ages and interests.
