The Creative Ireland programme has enriched the lives of many communities and individuals in County Cork. It aims to create pathways to a wide range of creative and cultural possibilities, connecting individuals and communities and encouraging people of all ages to discover their personal creative potential.
Creative Ireland seeks to place culture and creativity at the heart of many of the services that the Local Authority provides. This is reflected in County Cork Council’s Culture and Creativity team, whose membership is drawn from directorates in areas as diverse as climate adaptation, placemaking, economic development, as well as more commonly understood cultural functions of the arts, libraries, tourism, heritage, and language. This group fosters cross-disciplinary collaboration and sparks new initiatives to support and enhance the services we deliver.
