Creative Ireland

Cavan County Council launches its Creative Cavan Open Call Grants 2021

The Creative Ireland Programme is the Government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016 – a five-year initiative which places creativity at the centre of public policy. It is a culture-based programme designed to promote individual, community and national wellbeing. Its vision is ‘that every person living in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential.’ Creative Cavan delivers the “Creative Communities” pillar of the national programme, which provides funding to community-based creativity projects.

Cavan County Council’s Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022 wishes to provide opportunities for access, participation and engagement in culture and creativity for all citizens. This call is open to everyone, from artists & creatives to collectives & communities to apply for funding to assist in developing Cavan’s creativity.

Successful applications must demonstrate compatibility with at least two of the five pillars of the Creative Ireland programme. The grants will be between €2,500 and €5,000 in value and it is a desirable objective to ensure a broad geographical spread in projects funded.
