Cruinniú na nÓg 2022 Open Call - Grant Scheme

Creative Ireland Laois is seeking artists to create and deliver a programme of activities/ events to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg on Saturday 11 June.

We are inviting applications from creative practitioners, artists, and art organisations/groups (including a team of creative practitioners) who have the capacity to devise, facilitate and deliver creative content and activities for children and young people in any medium or artform (examples include theatre, music, circus, street art, performance, fashion, photography, digital arts, installation art, literature, storytelling, architecture, coding, biodiversity, folklife, heritage, archaeology, landscape).

Events should be focused on children and young people with children and young people themselves consulted and included in creating the event.

In particular, we welcome and will prioritise applications that give access to groups of children and young people who haven’t had such opportunities before.

Have a chat with children and young people and see what they’re interested in and develop a plan together...maybe they’ve always wanted to learn how to juggle, do some incredible science experiments, or explore their own community in a creative way.

Deadline for submissions is Thursday 31 March.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
