Inishowen children urged to unleash creative spirit 28.05.21

CRUINNIÚ na nÓg, the annual day of creativity for children and young people, is taking place on Saturday 12th June. The day aims to provide free creative opportunities for making and doing. This year in Donegal, there is a great line up of events including some creative hands-on opportunities.

Again this year, in-line with public health advice, creative opportunities will take place online and at home. There are a selection of activities where materials for taking part will be delivered to your home in advance of the day. This includes exciting opportunities to make a lockdown stool, a botanical clay print, a scribble bot, a storybook and musical instruments. From the first of June there will be “Activity Packs” available for collection in Culture Division Venues which will equip children with something to encourage them to explore the outdoors creatively.
Info of events in Donegal is available at www.wainfest.ie .
There is an array of online events taking place on the day and projects created by young people will be showcased. All events are entirely free of charge.

Eileen Burgess, Donegal Culture Division Manager, said: “We are delighted to have adapted this year’s programme to offer hands-on opportunities in the home. In March we asked children and young people across the county to let us know what they’d like to do or try this Cruinniú and activity packs featured strongly in the requests. There were lots of amazing suggestions and we’ve tried to incorporate as much as possible into this year’s programme.”

Registration is essential for most activities and places are limited. Information on the Donegal events, including booking details, is available at www.wainfest.ie and details of national initiatives can be viewed at www.cruinniu.creativeireland.gov.ie .
