The Creative Young Neighbourhoods scheme will advocate the voice of young people by supporting members of youth groups to play an active role in their creative experiences. Youth aged 10+ years of age can get involved by partnering with professional creatives on creative activities that take place in or connect with their own 'neighbourhoods'. In 2023, awards of up to €2,000 are available to fund Creative Young Neighbourhoods projects. Participating youth must be actively involved in every element of the creative process, from beginning to end.
An aim of Creative Young Neighbourhoods is to build on the annual occasion of Cruinniú na nÓg to inform policy and practice in the area of youth creativity throughout the year. Candidates are encouraged to engage with Cruinniú na nÓg 2023 to get a taste of what could be possible and to make connections in the fields of creativity and youth.
More information about eligibility and expression of interest forms are available at Youth Projects - Cork City Council.
