Our open calls
Creative Places West Cork Islands is an ambitious three-year culture-based community development programme for and about the West Cork islands. Creative Places aims to connect with people, artists and places, to allow ideas to develop into creative actions that are inspired by and enrich our island communities. Creative Places is about harnessing the power of creativity, culture & the arts to support and sustain the Island communities of West Cork.
We currently have two open calls, Islander Artist/Maker and Expression of Interest and we are inviting people from the islands and surrounding areas to get in touch with us to propose ideas or areas of interest you have that could benefit social and cultural life in your area.
More information and guidelines can be found within the applications below.
The Islander Artist / Maker scheme is for artists, creatives, community groups and individuals who are residents of Oileán Chléire, Sherkin Island, Heir Island, Long Island, Whiddy Island, Bere Island and Dursey Islands. There is currently no application deadline for these awards.
The Expression of Interest is for artists, creatives, community groups and individuals who are residents of the islands and beyond to express an interest in the project and to propose their own creative projects. There is currently no application deadline for these awards.
