Creative Communities Open Call 2023

Are you a creative practitioner who would like to work with a community group on an exciting collaborative creative project, or a group that would like to work with a professional creative practitioner? If so, this may be an opportunity for you. A central theme of the Creative Ireland Programme is collaboration in order to facilitate an ecosystem of creativity and to nurture the creative imagination through active engagement with the arts and culture. Creativity is an essential skill and communities and individuals of all ages can develop a sense of self and a shared understanding though creative expression.

Who can apply?

Any group within the community (or a venue or organisation working with a group) can look to develop a project with professional practitioners in any creative or cultural arena such as visual or performing arts, literature, cultural heritage or any other culture and creativity area. A group may approach the professional practitioner with a view to developing a project or vice-versa. 

We’re here to help.

If you have an idea for a project or need assistance or further information just to get started, please contact Alice Dixon, Creative Ireland Project Manager, on or contact Leitrim County Council on 071 96 21694.

Completed application forms must submitted online before midnight on Sunday the 2nd of April 2023.

Full guidelines and application forms are available on
