Creative expression provides opportunities for children and young people to try out new ideas and explore their creative potential.

Creative Schools  open for 2022-23 programme, with €2.5m going to participating Primary and Post-Primary schools and Youth Reach centres across Ireland.

The purpose of Scoileanna Ildánacha – Creative Schools is to support schools and Youthreach centres to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children’s and young people’s lives.

Participating schools/centres will take part in a guided journey over two years to develop a Creative Schools Plan unique to each school, and begin to implement it.

Key supports offered by this award include up to nine days per year of expert support and advice from a Creative Associate assigned to each school/centre, and a €4,000 grant towards activities and projects arising.

All applications to the Arts Council are made through the Arts Council’s online services system. Schools and Youthreach centres interested in applying to Scoileanna Ildánacha/Creative Schools 2022 can register an account on the Arts Council’s online services system here.
