An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD., joined by Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan TD., and Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy TD., launched 31 Local Authority Culture and Creativity Strategies 2018 – 2022, as part of the all-of-government Creative Ireland Programme on Wednesday 12 September, 2018.
These ambitious and innovative 5-year Culture and Creativity Strategies have been developed by the network of expert and passionate Culture Teams within the 31 Local Authorities, in consultation with artists, creatives, cultural and heritage organisations, community groups, the creative industries, centres of education and schools across the country. The Strategies embody both the spirit and practice of collaboration and shared purpose, which is at the heart of the Creative Ireland Programme. They aim to provide meaningful opportunities for citizens and local communities, together with our Local Authorities, to build, nurture and sustain our creative society.
Each Culture and Creativity Strategy sets out the vision, values and strategic priorities of each County and City Council inspired and informed by the Creative Ireland Programme.
