Event Description

The Creative Ireland Programme in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications announced the launch of Creative Climate Action. The €2 million fund, the first of its kind in Ireland, is for creative projects which can meaningfully connect people with profound changes happening in our environment, society and economy arising from climate change.
 
Creative Climate Action is now looking for proposals which can use creative and artistic approaches, to transform connection and awareness into climate action and behaviour change. The closing date for applications is Friday the 21st of May at 5.00 pm.
 
Further information on the fund and full details on how to apply can be found on the Creative Ireland website.

A webinar will take place on Friday 16th of April from 1.00 - 2.00 pm where you can learn more about the fund, and ask questions to a panel which will include funders and external advisors.
 
You can register for the event HERE.
