Inishowen urged to think creative
practitioners and organisations across Inishowen are
being urged to fire up their imaginations and
suggest events that could take place around the
peninsula, as part of Cruinniú na nÓg, on Saturday
13th June 2020.
Now in its third year, Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates
and encourages participation by children and young
people in creative activities in their local
communities. Do you have a proposal for Inishowen?
The Donegal Creative Ireland Team are seeking
proposals from every location in the county. Can you
help make these suggestions a reality or propose
something that would excite children aged 0-18years?
Young participants had a swell time
at the Seaweed Safari in Malin Head during Cruinniú
na nÓg 2019.
The emphasis of
Cruinniú na nÓg is on doing, making, creating.
Projects, programmes or event submissions are most
welcome but must take place or culminate on
Saturday, 13th June 2020.
Through this open call they are looking for artists,
dancers, storytellers, musicians, re-enactors and
all manner of experienced creative professionals, in
any medium or artform.
Traditional skills practitioners or others with an
expertise in landscape, flora, biodiversity,
heritage, history or any related field are also
encouraged to consider how they might engage with
Cruinniú na nÓg and its aim of doing, making,
creating. Any practitioner, venue, organisation or
community group may make a proposal.
The Donegal Creative Ireland Team will cover the
costs of selected proposals. The aim is to strike a
balance between the suggestions from children and
innovative proposals whilst providing variety in
terms of cultural & creative experience, age groups
