Creative Places Tuam Seeding Funds announced
Creative Places Tuam, the Arts Council’s pilot Creative Places | Cumas Ceantar programme, managed by Create has found new ways to build and connect with the community of Tuam over the past few months.
The Creative Places Tuam Seeding Fund was established in order to respond to the challenge posed by COVID-19 to artists and communities alike. The Seeding Fund enables individuals and groups to fund research or projects that will happen in and benefit the people of Tuam, supporting new thinking, new events or activities. It will create opportunities for civic, social and community groups and individuals to grow new ideas and resource themselves to stay active, engaged and connected.
Community is at the heart of Creative Places, so all successful projects will involve local people’s input. Along with additional financial support from Galway County Council, twenty awards were funded, more details can be seen here.
A new website for the project www.creativeplacestuam.ie will go live in November and the project can be followed on Facebook and Instagram
