Celebrating creativity!

An initiative to celebrate and encourage children and young people's participation in culture and creativity formed part of the Flavours of Fingal festival.

During the hugely successful two-day event at Newbridge House in Donabate, Cruinniú na nÓg swung into action.

It is a national initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme at the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to capture the ethos of Creative Ireland's Creative Youth Pillar and is presented in partnership with the Local Authorities and RTÉ.

It aims to celebrate and encourage children and young people's participation in culture and creativity in activities such as art, music, coding and theatre workshops, performances, exhibitions, readings, film screenings and much more.

Presented in partnership with the country's 31 local authorities and RTÉ, over 300 child-centered events will take place in local towns and neighbourhoods across the country.

All events are free and activity-based, with plenty of opportunities for young people to harness their imagination and unlock their creativity by 'doing', 'making' and trying something new! This initiative is being rolled out by the Culture Teams within each Local Authority across the country as part of the Creative Ireland
