Creative Ireland Grant Scheme 2023


Applications are invited for Kilkenny County Council’s Creative Ireland Grant Scheme 2023. The main purpose of this scheme is to provide financial support and to encourage cultural participation throughout Kilkenny, whilst supporting the delivery of the Kilkenny-Culture-and-Creativity-Strategy-2023-2027.pdf . We are also welcoming projects which focus to improve climate literacy and/or active engagement on climate action in the community through creativity. The Creative Ireland grant is suited towards local and community groups and individuals, artistic and creative practitioners, event organisers and those involved in creative, cultural and heritage activities and projects. 

This grant scheme is supported by the national Creative Ireland programme.
