Creative Ireland Strategy Development

Online Public Consultation

Monday 20th June from 6pm-7.30pm

Throughout this year Leitrim County Council will be undertaking a review its Creative Ireland Culture & Creativity Strategy with a view to developing a new strategy for the years 2023 – 2028.

We will be consulting widely and now we invite you, the public, to join us for our first online consultation via zoom. Your input is very much appreciated and valued. If you simply want to learn more about the programme here in Leitrim or perhaps you have had the opportunity to benefit from a Creative Ireland Leitrim experience and would like to feed into what happens next, please register on the link below.

So you have some background on the programme to date and the new developments that we hope to introduce over the next five years, please see a basic breakdown below.  

At a national level, Creative Ireland is developing a national strategy with five pillars:

-Creative Youth
-Creative Community
-Creative Industries
-Wellbeing
-Climate Change

We are proposing to mirror that approach, but to hone the pillars to better align with what we believe to be a good approach here in Leitrim. As such we have titled the five pillars as follows:

-Creative Youth
-Creative Community
-Creative Enterprise
-Wellbeing, Equality, Diversity and Social Inclusion
-Place, Environment and Climate Change

As part of the consultation, as well as finding out more about what people’s experience of the programme has been, we want to gain a better understanding of what should we keep about the way we have been organising the programme; what could we add; and in particular what might we be missing out on by organising our work into the chosen pillars/priorities.

Your contribution to the discussion is important and valued, so please do join us on Monday June 20th from 6pm-7.30pm. We will issue a zoom link to all those registered in advance of the meeting.
