The “Arts in Education Charter” articulates and promotes the essential role of the arts in education, enabling students to be successful in school life and work.
One of the 5 Pillars of the Creative Ireland Programme 2017 – 2022 is to: Enable the Creative Potential of Every Child. Devising an integrated implementation plan for arts in education is a priority for Creative Ireland.
Implementation of the objectives of the charter and Creative Ireland requires the partnership and collaboration of arts, education, business, philanthropy and government, that have a national scope and impact as well as state and local partnerships that promote educational policies supportive of arts in education.
The rationale for the establishment and development of a Local Arts in Education Partnership in the CMETB region is to nurture and support new relationships that will develop a shared responsibility for the delivery of arts in education that embraces visual, performing and literary arts.
For 2021, the main program objectives will be:
1. Liaise with national organisations with expertise in Youth Arts to design and deliver a training and networking programme to support working with young people.
2. Commissioning bespoke work which presents itself organically to the Partnership and Creative Monaghan
3. Resourcing and programming of a Cavan/Monaghan Mobile Van in partnership with relevant arts venues and organisations to combat the lack of provision and facilities in rural areas.
