Creative Ireland is a five year national programme that seeks to put culture at the heart of who we are and what we do as a people. The Programme is in recognition of the exceptional role that people and groups have been playing with regards to preserving and promoting culture locally and provides a myriad of supports to encourage continued belief in this culture and creativity in its expression.
The second annual Creative Ireland Conference will get under way in the Abbey Hotel on the morning of Friday 9th November in the culture steeped village of Baile Mhúirne, beginning with talks by members of Cork County Council’s Culture Team (with representation across the Arts, Library, Heritage, Tourism and Irish sections of the Council) to indicate the various supports and initiatives currently in place for promotion of culture within the County.
