Wicklow County Council invites applications under the Creative Wicklow Grant Scheme 2024. A total of €20,000.00 is available for this fund in 2024 and the closing date for receipt of submissions is Tuesday 19th March 2024.

 



This scheme has been designed to support Wicklow County Council’s role in delivering the Creative Ireland Programme.

 

Now in its third year, this scheme is open to not-for-profit organisations, local community groups, arts, heritage, biodiversity and cultural groups, venues and societies.

 

Activities that effectively capture and showcase the richness of County Wicklow’s arts, culture, creativity, heritage, nature, biodiversity, and history are welcomed. Applications by individuals must be in partnership with local community, arts, heritage, biodiversity and cultural groups.

 

Grants between €1,000 and €3,000 will be allocated to selected projects that communicate and celebrate aspects of Wicklow People and Place in creative and innovative ways.  The applications will be assessed by members of Wicklow County Council’s Culture Team with representation from the Heritage, Arts, Libraries and Archives departments.

 

Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Aoife Flynn Kennedy, said: “Wicklow County Council aims to place creativity and culture at the heart of communities throughout Wicklow, recognising that creativity positively influences wellbeing, and community and economic success”.

Wicklow County Council Chief Executive, Emer O’Gorman stated: "We are delighted to be in a position to support the innovative projects that have earned Wicklow County Council recognition as a creative county, where local community groups showcase and celebrate the richness of county Wicklow’s art and culture.”

 



The Creative Ireland Programme is led by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. The programme's core focuses in on encouraging participation in cultural and creative activity to promote individual, community and national wellbeing.
