Do you have an exciting idea for a creative project/event for children and young people that you would like to see happen?
This year Cruinniú na nÓg - the national day of creativity for children and young people - is going to be bigger than ever before, with restrictions relaxed we can now see a welcome return to live events taking place for young people in County Leitrim.
Right now we are encouraging children’s groups, youth organisations, arts centres, or any arts, heritage, environmental or educational organization etc. to submit an Expression of Interest to develop a project that allows children and young people to explore, enhance or celebrate their own creativity.
We particularly welcome Expressions of Interest from collectives of organisations so as to allow for the widest accessibility to Cruinniú na nÓg 2022 and to minimize overlap between different events and activities happening the same area. This could happen in number of ways.
A number of organisers could create a single collaborative project together, programme a series of events that take place in several venues but are coordinated to ensure that different age groups are catered for and that events for the same age group aren’t running at the same time.
So if you work with children and young people, this is a great opportunity to develop something really special. Have a chat with them and see what they’re interested in and develop a plan together. Perhaps they’ve always wanted to make a film, do some incredible science experiments, or explore their own community in a creative way.
If you’ve got an idea, we can help make it happen.
If you’re a theatre company, arts centre or involved in creativity in some other way and are looking to engage a new young audience, this is also a great opportunity to make that happen.
If you’re an artist that works with children and would like to get involved, contact a group that works with children and see if they’d like to work with you.
Grants will typically be in the region of €500 to €2,500.
Closing date for expressions of interest is March 25.
