The Creative Ireland Programme wishes to increase the suite of events and initiatives available, alongside those produced by each local authority, in order to further develop, diversify and expand the offering and audience for Cruinniú na nÓg in 2021. We are seeking applications from individuals/organisations who have the capacity to devise and deliver content and activities for a national (rather than local) audience of children and young people.
Cruinniú na nÓg is Ireland’s national day of free creative activity for children and young people up to 18 years of age.
Over the past 3 years it has become a key date in Ireland’s cultural calendar. We provide opportunities for Ireland’s 1.2 million children and young people to be inquisitive and curious, to be inventive and innovative, and to fulfil a creative ambition or showcase an inner creative talent. In 2021, Cruinniú na nÓg will take place on Saturday 12th June.
