Everyone from toddlers to teenagers are being encouraged to fire up their imaginations and take part in free creative activities across the county next month.

Over 30 events are taking place on Saturday 15 June as part of Cruinniú na nÓg, a Creative Ireland Programme initiative supported by Cork County Council and RTÉ.

Now in its second year, Cruinniú na nÓg, led by the Creative County Cork Culture and Creativity Team, with support from local artists, arts organisations, creative practitioners and community festivals, will see a diverse range of activities to explore from traditional Irish music to creative animation.

With a strong emphasis on participation, activities are specially designed to spark an interest and encourage children to try something new or fulfil a secret ambition!

Chief Executive of Cork County Council Tim Lucey said: “Cruinniú na nÓg is a wonderful opportunity for young people to truly appreciate their creative potential and their role in local community and culture. Cork County will see a wide variety of tremendous events and I commend the Council’s Culture and Creativity Team for putting such a great programme in place.”

County Mayor Cllr Patrick Gerard Murphy commented: “I’m delighted to see Cork County Council once again supporting the creativity and wellbeing of our young people. Schemes like this one, offering a wide range of local, free events that are truly accessible to all, have the potential to transform children’s lives and our communities too.”

Cruinniú na nÓg takes place on Saturday 15 June. For more information visit cruinniu.creativeireland.gov.ie.
