Creative Communities Grant Scheme 2018
The Creative Ireland Kerry (CIK) Programme is a collaboration between Creative Ireland and Kerry County Council. The vision of Creative Ireland is that every person living in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential.
The Creative Ireland Vision for Kerry is: to ensure people across Kerry truly value and experience creativity. Through creativity we will (1) cultivate wellbeing in communities; (2) increase people’s participation in and ownership of creative experiences whilst (3) growing Kerry’s creative profile.
The focus of this scheme is to enable creativity in every community. The Creative Communities Awards Scheme is a result of a public consultation process which was undertaken by Kerry County Council in 2017. Award sums will vary in value, depending on the number of meritable applications, with due regard to geographical spread. This is a competitive process. Applicants must demonstrate how they might access additional funds to develop the project, should they not secure the full amount requested. Applicants are reminded that that 2018 is Bliain Na Gaeilge and the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
