Offaly applications sought for Creative Ireland heritage projects


Offaly applications sought for Creative Ireland heritage projects

Offaly County Council, with financial support from Creative Ireland, seeks to award grants of €2,500 or €5,000 (up to a total of €10,000) to communities and artists working together to explore and present aspects of Offaly’s heritage.

Heritage can include any of the following monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects including archives, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, geology, heritage gardens and parks, inland waterways, folklore and local history.

This is a multi-disciplinary commission and applications are invited from communities that may work with visual artists, film makers, musicians, writers, theatre practitioners, choreographers, dance makers, new media and more.

Creative Ireland is the Government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016. The 2018-22 five-year Culture and Creativity Plan was adopted by Offaly County Council in December 2017 and can be viewed on news and events.

The Creative Ireland Programme has collaboration at its heart – between central and local government, between heritage, culture and industry, between artists, communities and policy makers– to facilitate a culture of creativity. This project, drawing together heritage, communities and artists, ideally fits in with Pillar Two of Creative Ireland, Enabling Creativity in Every Community. See There is a vibrant library network in the county which can be utilised as a resource as part of this call.

The closing date for receipt of submissions is noon on Friday 9 March 2018. Successful communities /artists will be notified by the end of March. The project must be completed with paper work submitted by the end of October 2018.
