Creative Ireland Programme

Creative Ireland is a culture-based programme designed to promote individual, community and national wellbeing.  The core proposition is that participation in cultural activity drives personal and collective creativity, with significant implications for individual and societal wellbeing and achievement.

Creative Ireland Kerry, based at the Arts Office at Kerry County Council is a programme which supports and communicates Kerry’s unique creative sector. It resources and values the central role of creativity across all sectors of society and works to promote a greater cultural, social and economic impact in the county. It is underpinned by public consultation and research which took place in 2017.
