Creative Communities on a Shared Island Fund (2023)
The Creative Ireland Creative Communities on a Shared Island Fund (2023) aims to foster cooperation, connection, and mutual understanding on the island of Ireland by leveraging the potential of the Good Friday Agreement. It seeks to engage with all communities and traditions, building consensus around a shared future.
To cultivate a shared sense of community, the Creative Communities – Shared Island initiative focuses on creating creative opportunities for connection through social interaction, engagement, and dialogue. This initiative intends to harness the existing strategic ambitions of local authorities in Ireland, both north-south and east-west (Ireland-Britain), and establish a collaborative network across the entire island. It recognizes and values the inherent creativity of all individuals living on the island of Ireland.
The eligibility criteria for this initiative require that applications be submitted by one of the 31 Local Authorities in Ireland. The lead applicant must be a Local Authority based in Ireland, and applications that encompass both east-west and north-south dimensions will be welcomed. It is essential that funding is allocated equitably among partners, ensuring meaningful engagement on both sides of the border.
Collaborative applications are encouraged from a diverse range of entities, including arts and cultural organizations or institutions, creative organisations, networks, museums, galleries, and art centers, community groups and networks, charities or not-for-profit organizations, philanthropic and research bodies, foundations and universities, individuals, social enterprises, business and commercial companies, all Ireland networks, and local authorities in Northern Ireland.
The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, June 30, 2023, at 5:00 PM.
