groups and individuals are urged to apply for
funding for projects that address culture,
heritage, arts or creative industries.
Applications are being invited for the Donegal
Culture & Creativity Grants Scheme 2020 which is
administered by Donegal County Council. The scheme
is offering 15 grants of €2,000 each to projects
that encourage cooperation and collaboration between
communities and heritage specialists, artists,
culture professionals and/or creative industries to
preserve, conserve, research, practice, exhibit,
perform, instruct, engage, enhance, promote or
address an aspect of the material or non-material
culture in an original, imaginative or creative way.
The Donegal Culture &
Creativity Grants Scheme 2020 promotes collaboration
and fosters creativity as envisaged in the Creative
Ireland programme. Creative Ireland is a
culture-based programme designed to promote
individual, community and national well-being.
Local Authorities across the country, including
Donegal County Council, are working in partnership
with Creative Ireland to deliver Pillar 2 of the
Creative Ireland programme that aims to ‘Enable
Creativity in Every Community’. Creative Ireland
defines culture as 'The shared values, patterns of
behaviour, customs and forms of expression that
characterise different social groups and communities
at any given time'.
The closing date for receipt of applications is
Friday, 31 January 2020 at 12 noon.
