The winners, along with their parents and teachers, will meet with Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Frank O’Flynn, to learn how their wish will come true.
Mayor O’Flynn said:
“I am looking forward to hearing about the creative wishes of our imaginative young people. When I was growing up, I had many creative ambitions and I would have loved an opportunity such as this. Whether it’s playing the ukulele, or learning a new art form, the young people whose wishes are granted will have a fantastic and creative experience.”
The eight winning creative wishes will be showcased, with the support of their school, as part of the national day of creativity, Cruinniú na nÓg, in June 2024. This may take the form of an exhibition, concert, or performance. 16 runner-up proposals will be selected to receive a free Creative Ireland-funded workshop at their local library.
