Creative Waterford Open Call Grants Announced

Sixteen grants are to be allocated to a range of community groups, organisations and individuals from Creative Waterford funding. 

Katherine Collins, Creative Waterford Coordinator said “Creative Waterford received 73 applications for grants this year. The standard of applications was exceptionally high. It’s wonderful to see all the creative ideas out in the community, from festivals to arts, from heritage projects to book publishing and environmental themes. 2020 will be an unusual one for communities, and it’s important to promote the value of creativity and innovation in times of adversity.”
