Submission deadline for the Kildare Culture and Creatvie strategy

Kildare County Council's offices at Aras Chill Dara

Submissions on the draft Kildare Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018- 2022 are invited before 12 noon, November 27, 2017 next.

The draft strategy is available for viewing on the Kildare County Council website.

It states that due to the increasing population of children and young people in Kildare there is a responsibility on KCC to provide cultural services and facilities for them, while also recognising the significant ageing population and the demands and expectations that creates around 'quality of life.'

The Culture and Creativity Strategy in Kildare was informed by a series of public consultations and think-tanks for members of Kildare's Creative Ireland team, partner organisations and agencies and individuals from the creative and cultural sector.

It states that "Kildare County Council, as lead partner, will facilitate an ongoing collaborative process to strengthen the culture and creative infrastructure in Kildare." And KCC will further develop relationships with artists across arts forms, arts organisations, designers, craft workers, historians, archivists, community activists, educators, history, heritage and biodiversity groups, game developers, the Irish Language community, archaeologists, ecologists, architects, volunteers, the tourism sector, County Kildare Tourism Board, County Kildare Chamber of Commerce, Local Enterprise Office, local authority staff and elected representatives.

Email submissions to creativekildare@kildarecoco.ie, or hard copy, marked 'Creative Ireland Strategy' to Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge, Co Kildare
