Expressions of Interest for Culture Night 2024 are now open for all communities and artists across the county to get involved

Culture Night Carlow is managed and delivered by Carlow County Council Arts Service and building on the huge success of last year’s Carlow Culture Night we now invite everyone, everywhere, on one joyful night to discover and celebrate all that our culture is today.

Cathaoirleath Carlow County Council Cllr Andrea Dalton “County Carlow is beaming with pride with all its diverse cultural artistic expresssions, rich history and heritage and is a place of inspiration for our artists and communities.  Culture Night brings communities together to celebrate, belong and include and represent all of what Carlow is today.  We look forward to this year’s events and look forward to collaboration, celebration and accessible arts and culture for all, supported and managed by the Arts Service of Carlow County Council.’

Culture Night experience is across a wide range of sectors – culture, arts, heritage, education, hospitality, tourism, health and commercial and corporate enterprise.  Its diversity is reflected in the scope and range of events and people who participate – and it aims to continue to connect with both engaged audiences as well as extending its reach to those who may not always have access.

Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir is brought to you by the Arts Council in partnership with and led by Carlow County Council Arts Service; it is a national moment, celebrating culture, creativity and the arts and seeks to actively promote the belief that this rich and varied culture is alive, treasured and nurtured in people's lives, today and every day. It is delivered nationwide in cities, towns villages and rural locations as well as online and through our media partners.

We invite individuals and organisations to submit proposals for Culture Night 2024. Proposals can include ANY and ALL creative activities, performances, readings, workshops, interactive installations, etc.

We encourage special and unique events and workshops that are specifically programmed at participating locations throughout County Carlow from 4pm till LATE!
