Following from a very successful first year of Creative Ireland programmes in Galway County in 2017, the Galway County Council Culture Team began drafting this five-year strategic plan, adhering to the national template provided by Creative Ireland to all Local Authorities.
Key priorities were identified, informed by several existing local Council strategies and public consultation and with significant community feedback and ideas incorporated for the delivery of the plan at local level. The devolution of responsibility for the Creative Ireland programme to local authorities supports the crucial role we play through our Culture Team to make an impact within our community, working collaboratively to increase participation in the arts, to boost our creative industries and preserve our heritage with a focus on language, landscape and the environment.
