Unleash your creative spirit!
Cruinniu na nÓg 2020 is a national day of free creativity for children and young people across Ireland and will take place on Saturday 13th June 2020. Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates and encourages participation in creativity and culture. Due to current restrictions this year, things will work a little differently with events and activities available online to participate in.
On Saturday 13th June, view all events online at Creative Laois YouTube channel or on Facebook or Instagram.
The day is still about giving children and young people the opportunity to express themselves through a specially curated programme of creative and cultural activities where they can participate, engage with new ideas, learn new skills and have fun!
