Experienced Individuals Required: Creative Ireland Programme


Invitation to Tender for Laois Creative Ireland Programme 2019

Laois County Council invites tenders from suitably qualified and experienced individuals to project manage the 2019 Creative Ireland Programme.

The Creative Ireland Programme is a five year all-of-Government initiative to place creativity at the centre of public policy. It is guided by a vision that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise their full creative potential.

A Sense of Place is the theme chosen for our Creative Ireland Laois Plan for 2018-2022. A county where culture and creativity are recognised as integral to life. The Creative Ireland Vision for Laois is to nurture and foster creative expression in all its diversity; to embrace and welcome new ideas; and to create the conditions to help turn those ideas into reality and embed creativity into all aspects of the social, economic and cultural life of Laois.

Key projects for 2019 include assisting in the administering of Community Bursaries, Cruinniú na nÓg, assisting in the establishment of a Film Laois Office and delivery of key elements of the Creative Ireland Laois Strategy 2018-’22, as well as incorporating elements of the CI objectives into the Laois Arts programme, for example the Summer Arts Programme, Leaves Festival of Writing and Music, the Laois School of Music and Music Generation Laois

Closing date for receipt of proposals is Thursday 11 April at 4.30pm.
