Culture Night 2019 Expression of Interest

Culture Night is an annual event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year it will take place on Friday 20th September 2019 from 4pm.

County Westmeath Culture Night is now looking for artists, performers, community groups, collectives, and venues who would like to participate in Culture Night 2019. We are paying particular attention to the scheduling of Culture Night events to try to avoid overlap which may reduce audiences for all so we would ask you to be flexible in your proposed event time.

Please be specific as to what costs are involved in your participation. Applying for funding does not guarantee that your event will be funded. You will be notified if you have been successful by mid-July 2019. Please note that due to the volume of applications received not all applicants will be successful every year. This is to ensure variety in the programme, avoid scheduling overlaps, and to showcase a wider selection in our community.

New ideas and collaborations are especially welcome and proposals can include but not limited to: street spectacle, music performances, comedy acts, literature events, visual art exhibitions, theatre, dance, film, heritage tours, talks and workshops.

If you are a group/venue hosting a Culture Night event and would like to register your event, please complete the Culture Night 2019 Application Form and email it to arts@westmeathcoco.ie Closing date for applications is Friday June 28th.

Please also include a hi-res image/logo for your event for possible use in the brochure or website. Your event will be advertised in our Brochure and on the National Culture Night Website. Late applications will not be accepted.
