Creative Westmeath Community Grant 2020


Westmeath County Council, in association with Creative Ireland, has a grant scheme to develop a programme of events as part of the Creative Ireland Programme 2017 – 2022.

It is guided by a vision that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise their full creative potential. Continuous engagement with the arts and culture is enormously beneficial for building creative capacities. Enhancing wellbeing, culture and creativity are essential features of an innovative society where the ability to conceptualise is more important than knowledge. An important aspect of the Creative Ireland programme is its collaborative nature - between national and local government, and as part of this each local authority has prepared a Culture and Creativity strategy to support this work.

About the Open Call
