Scoileanna Ildánacha / Creative Schools 2022 new deadline

Scoileanna Ildánacha / Creative Schools have extended the window for applications to Creative Schools 2022. The new deadline is: Thursday, 16th June, 17:30.

Scoileanna Ildánacha/Creative Schools 2022 welcomes applications from schools and Youthreach centres across the country who would like to join the programme in autumn 2022. The application guidelines are published here.

The purpose of Scoileanna Ildánacha/Creative Schools is to support schools and Youthreach centres to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children’s and young people’s lives. Participating schools/centres will take part in a guided journey over two years to develop a Creative Schools Plan unique to each school, and begin to implement it. Key supports offered by this award include up to nine days per year of expert support and advice from a Creative Associate assigned to each school/centre, and a €4,000 grant towards activities and projects arising. 

All applications to the Arts Council are made through the Arts Council’s online services system. Schools and Youthreach centres interested in applying to Scoileanna Ildánacha/Creative Schools 2022 can register an account on the Arts Council’s online services system here.  

Further information about the programme and how to apply is available here.
