Apply to be a Creative School
Creative Schools aims to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children’s and young people’s lives and this year 150 new schools will join the programme. Selected schools will receive a package of support in the 2019-2020 school year including an award of €2,000 and a Creative Associate who will work with them to develop and begin implementing their own Creative School Plan.
