Sligo Creative Ireland 2017 – Public Consultation Session

March 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sligo County Council, in association with the offices of Creative Ireland 2017 – 2022,  with support from the Department of Arts, Heritage Regional Rural & Gaeltacht affairs, and the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government,  wishes to build on the success of community engagement and participation in marking the Centenary Year.

Creative Ireland 2017 – 2022, a National Initiative emanating from the 1916 Centenary Legacy, aims to develop, coordinate and deliver a programme for 2017, along with the production of a five year dedicated Culture and Creativity Plan for each Local Authority to be published by October 2017.  Enabling creativity in every community is a core pillar to the Creative Ireland Programme which will place our culture and our creative capacity at the centre of public policy in many instances involving considerable Volunteer effort .

It is proposed to hold a Creative Ireland event on Easter Monday the 17th April 2017 (Cruinniú na Cásca) and in the future to develop a major cultural event on this date around the theme of Citizenship which will be incorporated into the Co. Sligo Culture and Creativity Plan.

A Public Consultation Session on the Creative Ireland initiative facilitated by the Creative Ireland office will take place as follows:

Date:                Tuesday 21st March 2017

Time:               6.30p.m. – 8.30p.m.
