The national day of creativity for children and young people, Cruinniú na nÓg takes place on Saturday 11th June 2022. It aims to celebrate and encourage children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity by providing free, activity-based action in their own locality.

 

Through an Open Call, Donegal County Council’s Culture and Creativity Team are seeking proposals from practitioners, community groups and organisations for creative events and activities that will provide opportunities for children and young people to make, do, try or see.

 

Once again, in the Voice of the Child Survey, suggestions are being gathered from young people across the county as to what they might like to do this Cruinniú na nÓg.

 

Expression of interest – open call

 

The emphasis of Cruinniú na nÓg is on doing, making, creating. Through an Open Call we are looking for practitioners, venues, organisations or community groups to make a proposal. We would encourage creative practitioners in any medium or artform (such as theatre, dance, music, opera, film, circus, performance, fashion, photography, visual arts, digital arts, literature and storytelling, street art and spectacle) to submit a proposal. Traditional skills practitioners or others with expertise in areas such as flora & fauna/biodiversity, folklife, archaeology, built heritage, history, vernacular architecture or any related field are also encouraged to consider how they might engage with Cruinniú na nÓg. Submissions are welcome from communities in every location in the county but projects or events must take place or culminate on Saturday 11th June 2022. Applicants are asked to consider suggestions from children and young people across Donegal, which can be found at www.wainfest.ie   Alternative formats such as online or post are also welcome. 

 

Cruinniú na nÓg is funded through the Creative Ireland Team, Donegal and we are delighted to announce that in 2022 the total amount available to cover all events and administrative costs has increased to €30,000. Event proposers however are encouraged to make realistic submissions in terms of scale and costs and funding will be allocated to those events which best meet the objectives of Cruinniú na nÓg.

 

Cruinniú na nÓg proposal forms can be downloaded at www.wainfest.ie. Completed forms should be emailed to [email protected] by Friday 4th March 2022 at 12 noon.

 

Cruinniú na nÓg is an initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme at the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and is presented in partnership with RTÉ and Local Authorities.
