Creative Ireland is the Government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016 – a five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy.

Creative Ireland aims to bring an enhanced level of coordination, focus and leadership to existing policies and initiatives across national and local government, State agencies, the arts and culture sector, Gaeltacht and Irish language organisations, and will provide linkages to the private business and NGO sectors.

This event on Monday, 10 April will seek input from artists, creatives and community groups as to how County Cavan can engage with the Creative Ireland programme’s five key pillars:

·         Enabling the Creative Potential of Every Child

·         Enabling Creativity in Every Community

·         Investing in our Creative and Cultural Infrastructure

·         Ireland as a Centre of Excellence in Media Production

·         Unifying our Global Reputation

Present at the event will be Programme Director John Concannon, who will explain the Government’s vision for Creative Ireland and place County Cavan’s efforts in a national context, along with Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Heather Humphreys TD, and Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr Fergal Curtin.

All are welcome to this event. For further information on Creative Ireland, visit creative.ireland.ie
