Kildare based Senator Fiona O’Loughlin has welcomed the announcement of €175,161 in funding allocated for Kildare under the Creative Ireland projects
The ambition of the Creative Ireland Programme is to mainstream creativity in the life of the nation. Participation in cultural and creative activity promotes individual, community and national wellbeing.
Creative Communities is a collaboration, between central and local government, between culture and industry, between artists, policy makers and communities.
Senator O’Loughlin said, “I am pleased to see my Government colleague Minister Darragh O’Brien TD announce over €175,000 in funding to Kildare for Creative Ireland Local Authority Projects.”
“I firmly believe that culture plays a key role in local government’s work in creating great places to live and work. Culture and creativity play a key part in building resilient and close-knit communities”
Senator O’Loughlin concluded “Local projects such as the beautiful murals around Newbridge under the short grass wall project and others that have been completed around South Kildare, have given our communities such a lift, and it shows the positive impact culture and creativity can have on our localities. I am excited to see what creative projects are in store for us in 2022. ”
