Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates children’s creativity

A new national day of creativity for children and young people, Cruinniú na nÓg takes place on Saturday 23 June 2018.


Cruinniú na nÓg aims to celebrate and encourage children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity through a mix of performances, demonstrations, coding, theatre, workshops, readings and screenings, special events and much more. This variety of events for young people will be free and activity-based, with plenty of opportunities for young people to get doing, making and creating.


Call for proposals 

Donegal County Council is inviting proposals from those interested in organising an event for children and young people with an emphasis on doing, making or creating.


Could you deliver or organise an event for children and young people that celebrates culture and creativity?


The emphasis is on doing, making, creating.



Events will take place at public libraries in Bundoran, Letterkenny, Milford, Carndonagh and Buncrana, na Rosann - Dungloe, the Regional Cultural Centre – Letterkenny and the County Museum - Letterkenny. Other accessible venues may be proposed by the applicant.  Events should be free of charge.



Donegal County Council will cover the costs of the selected events – including the costs of hiring artists or other culture/creativity sector practitioners and the costs of materials.  The total funding available to cover all events in Donegal is €10,000 so event proposers are encouraged to make realistic submissions in terms of scale and costs.


It will not be possible to approve all proposals in which case funding will be allocated to those events which best meet the objectives of Cruinniú na nÓg.  The aim is to provide variety in terms of cultural & creative experience, age groups, and locations, all of which will be considerations when deciding on applications.

Completed forms should be emailed to or delivered to Roisín McMonagle, Donegal County Council, Rosemount Lane, Letterkenny F92 KP90 by 12 noon, 16 May 2018.
