What is Creative Ireland?
The Creative Ireland programme is the Government's Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016- a five year initiative, from 2017-2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy. It is a culture based programme designed to promote individual, community and national wellbeing. The vision of Creative Ireland is that every person living in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise fully his or her potential. The Creative Ireland programme also requires each local authority to create a Culture and Creativity Strategy.
What is the purpose of a Culture and Creativity Strategy?
The Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-22 was launched on September 12 2018 .Our vision is to design, drive and deliver a strategy that transforms Galway into a working model of cultural sustainability, community participation, best practice and world class cultural and creative experiences. Connecting artists and other creators to communities is also regarded as essential to realising the vision.
