Leitrim community groups are asked to get creative as grant applications open

There’s a call out of community groups in Leitrim to become engaged in a project with the creative sector.

Applications for funding through the Creative Ireland Programme are now open.

It enables groups and individuals to gain access, knowledge and appreciation of the arts, culture and heritage


The community group, venue or organisation works in partnership with professional practitioners to develop a project with a view to exploring the arts, culture and heritage in creative and innovative ways.

Grants of between 500 euro and 5,000 euro are available; the closing date for applications is February 16th.

Alice Dixon is Creative Ireland Project Manager – she outlines one of last year’s successful projects.
