The Arts Council Invites Applications for Creative Schools Initiative

300 schools across the country will benefit from the Initiative

The Arts Council has invited schools across Ireland to take part in their Creative Schools initiative. Now in its second year, the initiative offers schools the opportunity to understand, develop and celebrate their engagement with the arts, empowering them to bring about real change in the way they work.

Participating schools are provided with funding and expertise to enable them to explore the potential impact of the arts and creativity on school life. Participating schools are supported to develop and begin to implement their own Creative School Plan, connecting them to the full range of local and regional cultural resources and opportunities.

Who can apply?

All Department of Education and Skills primary and post-primary schools, special schools and Youthreach centres across the state are eligible to apply.

Interested schools should:

  • Step 1 – Get online to find out more www.artscouncil.ie/creative-schools
  • Step 2 – Register your school today (this can take up to 5 working days)
  • Step 3 – Apply online between before 19 March 2020.

The Arts Council invites applications from schools from the 18 February 2020 to the 19 March 2020. Work will begin in the new 150 schools in September 2020.
