Date: 31 Mar 2021 New €2 million fund for creative & cultural projects to engage the public around climate action. The Creative Ireland Programme in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC) is inviting applications to Creative Climate Action, a competitive fund of €2 million. Creative Climate Action will fund creative and cultural projects that can meaningfully connect people with the profound changes that are happening in our environment, society and economy arising from climate change, and can transform that connection into behaviour change or climate action. There are two strands of funding available which are detailed in this Briefing Note: An open call – to organisations, NGOs, charities, enterprises, institutions and collectives/ networks working with creative and cultural practitioners A closed call – to local authorities, either individually, with other local authorities or external partners The programme is expected to fund between 10 – 20 projects until the end of 2022 with budgets of between €30,000 — €200,000, however this will be determined by the number and scale of applications received. A detailed Briefing Note provides further information on both the creative and the climate challenge. Applications can be made through the online Application Form. The closing date for applications is Friday 21st of May at 5.00pm. An online briefing will take place on Friday 16th April from 1.00 – 2.00 pm where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the funding panel. Further information can be found HERE.
