Cruinniú Na nÓg

Sat 11 Jun 2022

June 11th in St Peters Cork.....A Day of Youthful Creativity! We’ve been busily putting together a vibrant programme of live and online events that will give everyone the opportunity to let their creativity shine. In the meantime, follow our social channels and you’ll be the first to hear of our exciting plans for this day of free creativity for young people. Ireland is the first, and only, country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18. Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg took place on 23rd June 2018 with over 500 events taking place in cities, towns and villages across the country. The second outing on 15th June 2019 proved to be even more successful with over 750 free creative events taking place nationwide. In partnership with the 31 Local Authorities and supported by RTÉ, thousands of parents, families and young people took part in a wide range of fun, free, creative activities; from graffiti art workshops to stop-motion animation, robot-making to shield-making workshops!

They are energetic and fun and suitable to any age group.
