Creative Ireland Grant Scheme

Local authorities may provide financial support to community and voluntary groups and anyone involved in the arts, culture, heritage and language sectors to develop projects to improve access to, and appreciation of, the arts, culture and creativity.

Carlow County Council manages the Creative Ireland Grant scheme.  The Creative Ireland Carlow programme is managed by the Culture Team of Carlow County Council and coordinated by the Arts Service. 

In 2023 an Open Call was advertised for grants over a two-year period under the Creative Ireland Carlow programme.

Carlow Call for Expression of Interest

Cruinniú na nÓg empowers children and young people to develop their creative expression by providing opportunities for them to participate in free creative activities in their local area. It’s Ireland’s national day for ‘doing’, ‘making’ and ‘creating’! This year Cruinniú na nÓg will take place on Saturday 15th June across the country.

We invite individuals and organisations to submit proposals for Cruinniú na nÓg 2024 as part of the Creative Ireland Carlow Programme. Proposals can include ANY and ALL creative activities, performances, readings, workshops, interactive installations, etc. that can run in the lead up to Cruinniú with a main event on 15th June 2024 OR a one-off event happening on 15th June 2024.
