The Creative Ireland Open Call is a countywide open call to community groups, organisations, venues, artists, writers, performers, archaeologists and everyone involved in the culture and creative sectors to develop high quality projects and programmes that enable groups and individuals to realise their creative potential and develop and encourage greater access, knowledge and appreciation of the arts, culture and creativity.

Applications must be developed by a community group, venue or organisation in partnership with individuals with professional expertise in any creative or cultural arena such as visual or performing arts, literature, heritage or other culture and creativity area. A group may approach the professional practitioner with a view to developing a project or visa-versa. We particularly welcome project proposals that involve groups that have had little or no previous involvement in creative projects and we endeavour to give whatever advice and assistance we can to ensure your project can achieve the best possible experience for everyone involved.

In order to help all applicants, a series of three public meetings are being held to provide advice and assistance to help ensure projects being planned can achieve the best possible experience for everyone involved.  Whether you are a member of a community or youth group interested in developing a project, or a practicioner who would like to work with a group, these meetings will be of interest to you.

The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • The Dock, Carrick on Shannon – Wednesday 8thMay at 8pm
  • Ballinamore Library – Thursday 9thMay at 6pm
  • The Glens Centre, Manorhamilton – Friday 10thMay at 8pm
  • The nominal amount awarded to any one project will typically be between €500 and €5,000. While there is no fixed number of awards, there will generally be a larger number of lesser value awards and a small number of higher value ones. The quantity and value of awards will depend on available funding, number of applicants and the quality of applications.

For further information please contact Alice Dixon, Creative Ireland Project Manager, on creativeleitrim@gmail.com or contact Leitrim County Council on 071 96 21694. Alice will be at the venues before and again after each workshop to chat with individuals one-to-one about their plans.
