Creative Schools – Application Deadline Extended

Scoileanna Ildánacha / Creative Schools have extended the deadline for schools/centres to apply to Scoileanna Ildánacha / Creative Schools 2020.

Due to school closures the applications for Creative Schools 2020 will remain open until the new deadline of 17:30, Thursday 23 April 2020.  

Further information on the Creative Schools application process is available here. Applications must be submitted online and schools are encouraged to register well in advance of the deadline.

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/centres will join the programme. Participating schools will work alongside a Creative Associate who will help them to develop their own Creative Schools plan to understand, develop and celebrate the arts and creativity in their school.  Schools will be awarded a once-off grant of €4,000 (in total) to implement their plans over the two school years 2020–21 and 2021–22.
