Creative Ireland Programme 2023-2027
The Creative Ireland Programme is an all-of-government initiative committed to enhancing access to, engagement with, and enjoyment of Ireland’s culture and creativity. The vision of the Creative Ireland Programme 2023 - 2027 is to mainstream creativity (arts, culture, heritage or technology) in the life of the nation so that individually and collectively, in our personal lives and in our institutions, we can realise our full creative potential thereby promoting individual, community and national wellbeing.
The Creative Ireland Programme will prioritise its work around five aspects for the period 2023-2027: Creative Youth; Creative Communities; Creative Industries; Creative Health and Wellbeing; Creative Climate Action and Sustainability.
Creative Communities is led by our local authorities, and we aspire to deliver new creative engagement initiatives for example children and young people, older persons, climate action, and local economies. We seek to enhance individuals and communities’ perception about the role and value of culture and creativity as central to our wellbeing in its broadest sense.
The opportunity embraced within the Galway County Culture and Creativity Strategy 2023 - 2027 is to support people’s participation, inclusion and expression within communities, and further strengthen local creative economies.
