Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD announced the Government’s decision in principle to extend the Creative Ireland Programme until 2027.
Creative Ireland is a five-year programme which connects people, creativity and wellbeing.
Minister Martin said:
“I warmly welcome the Government’s decision to implement the all-of-government Creative Ireland Programme for another five years, and to work with me in the coming months to develop its framework. This programme has been innovative and effective in delivering the opportunity for people to explore their creative potential. Key initiatives such as Cruinniú na nÓg and Creative Schools have become embedded in the country’s cultural infrastructure. New projects that respond to contemporary social issues such as climate action and loneliness have emerged. With the support of my Cabinet colleagues, I look forward to developing a Creative Ireland Programme that will continue to enhance people’s lives in the coming years.”
