Culture Night Cork County 2021 will celebrate the creativity and resilience of the Rebel County in a programme of events that aims to bring culture, art and joy back to public spaces across the county. Cork County Council are inviting artists, performers and cultural groups to submit proposals to take part in a full evening of cultural activity from 4pm to midnight on Friday 17th September.

Bandon, Carrigaline, Clonakilty, Cobh, Fermoy, Macroom, Mallow, Midleton will be special areas of focus for Cork County this year where outdoor, public focused family friendly events will celebrate the diversity and creativity of county towns. Events in other locations will also be supported to ensure that the county is widely represented on the Culture Night 2021 Programme, including activities and events of local relevance to all members of the Cork County community.

Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr. Mary Linehan Foley encouraged applicants saying;

“Arts and culture have played a vital role in our community throughout the past year, providing people with a creative outlet, a means of connecting with one another safely and a way of recording the extraordinary experience we have all shared in for generations to come. Despite this, those working in the arts and culture sector have been hugely impacted by the pandemic. Culture night is an opportunity to celebrate their resilience and show that Cork County celebrates and nurtures creativity.”

A maximum of €2,000 can be awarded to a project. Please note it may not be possible to provide financial assistance for all proposals. For Proposal Forms see below or contact Cork County Council’s Arts Office at
