Creative Ireland: Cruinniú na nÓg 2019


Westmeath County Council is pleased to announce an open call for artists, creative practitioners, arts organisations, creative facilities and creative/cultural communities to submit applications for Cruinniú na nÓg 2019 as part of the Westmeath Creative Ireland Programme. This call is for activities, performances, readings, workshops, interactive art installations, etc to take place on Saturday 15th June 2019.   

Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates and encourages children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity through performance, coding, theatre, art and music workshops, readings, screenings, special events and much more. Events are free, local and activity-based. It’s a day for ‘doing’, ‘making’ and ‘creating’!

This year we are looking for all types of artists to present work in the form of activities, performances, developmental workshops or projects for young people aged 0-18. These activities will take place within the communities of Westmeath. They can happen in community centres, public spaces, schools, libraries and venues. These events can be one off to happen on the 15th June or be project based with the final outcome demonstrated on the 15th June. Activities are inclusive of all art forms and creative forms including but not limited to: coding, visual art, music, dance, drama, storytelling, puppetry, circus, street art, performance, design, readings, poetry, crafting, etc. We are looking for innovative activities that foster creativity and engage a diverse audience.
