Culture and Creativity plan for Kildare

Culture and Creativity plan for Kildare

Open Meeting on Thursday 9th March - all welcome

Enabling creativity in every community is a core pillar of the Creative Ireland Programme, an ambitious five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which will place our strongest assets – our culture and creative communities - at the centre of public policy. 

In 2016, Kildare County Council demonstrated their unique capacity to activate and support community engagement and participation in marking the Centenary year through a wide range of arts, culture and heritage initiatives.   

Creative Ireland aims to build on this success by leading on the development of a dedicated Culture and Creativity plan for Kildare based on the premise that participation in cultural activity drives personal and collective creativity, with significant implications for individual and societal well-being.

Kildare County Council and the Creative Ireland national team will host an open meeting on Thursday 9th March at 7pm until 9pm in Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge, to share details about the Programme and to explore opportunities to increase access, engagement and collaboration in the local heritage group and arts and creative industries in Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge. 

Come along so that we can hear your views.
