WHAT

CRUINNIÚ NA N-ÓG – A DAY OF CREATIVITY FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Cruinniú na nÓg is a national day of creativity for children and young people on Saturday June 23rd, 2018.

The focus for Dublin City Council’s Cruinniú na nÓg 2018 will be on activities taking place in the city’s suburbs, neighbourhoods and villages, enabling young people to access creativity where they live, in their communities, with their friends and family.

Dublin City Council, via its cultural initiative Dublin’s Culture Connects, is seeking expressions of interest from artists and makers across Dublin. Through the CREATIVE OPEN CALL below, we are looking for artists, dancers, storytellers, musicians and all manner of experienced creative professionals, in any medium or artform (theatre, dance, music, opera, film, circus, performance, fashion, photography, visual arts, digital arts, literature and storytelling, architecture, street art and spectacle), with an interest in working with children/young people, to work with us on this year’s Cruinniú na nÓg:

This is an invitation to the city’s cultural sector to showcase work for, with, and by our younger citizens as well as shining a spotlight on the multiplicity of cultural and creative activity happening in neighbourhoods and villages around the city on a regular basis.

Dublin City Council’s creative and cultural teams, including Dublin Culture Connects, Dublin City Arts Office and Dublin City Libraries will be working together to develop, present and promote creative activities in libraries, cultural venues, council facilities, and community spaces throughout Dublin City Council’s administrative area.
