Now in its second year, Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates and encourages participation by children and young people in creative activities in their local communities. It will be led by the local Creative Donegal Culture and Creativity Team with huge support from local artists, arts organisations, creative practitioners and community festivals.
Activities include everything from hands on art to nature, with a strong emphasis on participation and are specially designed to spark an interest and encourage the inner creative in children to try something new or fulfil a secret ambition!
