The Creative Ireland Programme is the Government’s 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. It’s vision is:
“That every person living in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential”
Under the Creative Ireland Programme, applications are now being sought for projects and initiatives which will take place in 2018. The maximum grant available to an individual project in this round of funding is €5,000. 75% of the approved project cost will be supported by the County Waterford Creative Ireland Programme with 25% being met by the successful applicants.
Projects and initiatives already supported through any other funding stream from Waterford City and County Council will not be eligible to apply. We now invite you to see yourselves as co-creators of your own cultural and creative experiences and to mobilise communities of interest.
The aim of this Open Call is to encourage new, ambitious and meaningful collaborations between people and communities and artists/archaeologists/historians/archivists and everyone else involved in the culture and creative sectors within County Waterford.
