As part of the Creative Ireland Programme, each of the 31 local authorities has established a Culture Team bringing together arts officers, librarians, heritage officers, archivists and other relevant expertise to foster and encourage creative activity.

A Creative Ireland Coordinator from within each Culture Team, works closely with the Creative Ireland Programme office, to lead and implement a bespoke Culture and Creativity plan at local level.

The Creative Ireland Programme Local Authority Coordinators and Culture Teams are integral to the Programme – creating, coordinating and enabling cultural and creative activity in communities all across Ireland. 

Below are a selection of useful links to Departments, organisations and initiatives who are developing and implementing culture, creative and wellbeing programmes:

The Creative Ireland Programme works in collaboration and partnership with a diverse range of local and national Government departments, organisations, agencies and individuals.  By working collaboratively, opportunities to support creativity and wellbeing are identified, supported and activated as well as new initiatives developed.
