To Be Irish @ Christmas 2021: Open Call for Cultural Events

To Be Irish @ Christmas 2021: Open Call for Cultural Events

Thursday, 25 November 2021, 6.00pm

To Be Irish @ Christmas, launched in 2020 by the Department of Foreign Affairs to create meaningful connections with the Irish diaspora and those who have a grá or are interested in Ireland and Irish culture around the world.

Last year, with input from Local Authorities, venues, organisations and shops across Ireland and internationally, along with Irish Embassies across the globe, To Be Irish @ Christmas was able to host a programme of over 200 events as well 100 personal stories shared by our diaspora community.

This year’s initiative will run from 8 - 23 December 2021 presenting a festive programme of online and offline events. Our platform is an opportunity for you to showcase events globally that celebrate Irish culture around Christmas featuring crafts, community initiatives, seasonal traditions and more.

With the expectation of there not being any travel restrictions over the Christmas period our remit this year is twofold in that we wish to present and promote:
– online content aimed at the Irish Diaspora and a global audience interested in Ireland who are overseas and will not be travelling to Ireland.
– in-person events aimed at the Irish Diaspora or visitors travelling to Ireland over the Christmas period.
