Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Ms. Josepha Madigan, T.D., was today (Monday 14th May) joined by 4th class students of St. Patrick’s National School, Garristown and founder of Fighting Words Roddy Doyle for the announcement of the new Creative Ireland Programme Scheme 2018/2019.
The Creative Ireland Programme is a culture-based well-being initiative which is guided by a vision that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise their full creative potential. It is a five year all-of- Government Programme, from 2017 to 2022, to place creativity at the centre of public policy. In 2017, the Creative Ireland Programme supported a range of successful talks, workshops and events on culture, creativity and well-being, to encourage deeper understanding and appreciation of the role of creativity and to promote the new Programme’s objectives and underlying values.
