Cruinniú na nÓg

Cruinniú na nÓg 2022 Programme

Creative Ireland Clare is delighted to present to you its Cruinniú na nÓg 2022 programme. We have a wide selection of events for all ages and interests, spread across the whole county of Clare. All events are free and some require booking. Some events were offered directly to schools so that as many children as possible could participate. We hope you enjoy this free day of creativity that celebrates the voice of the child.

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.

Nationwide events include:

  • More than 450 free creative events for young people throughout the country
  • Eight live music stages with performances livestreamed on dedicated TV channel
  • 12 pop up dance performances
  • Youth Theatre Ireland to host introductory theatre workshops nationwide
  • 5,000 juggling balls distributed nationwide, with four circus workshops in Tipperary, Cork, Dublin and Galway
  • Four historic houses to host free Cruinniú na nÓg activities

Creative Ireland Clare is a collaborative programme that encompasses arts, culture, community and heritage. It is part of Clare County Council and is managed by a Culture Team from the Library, Arts, Heritage, Archives, Museum, Local Enterprise and Community and Rural Development sectors.

Special thanks to our Programme Curator Sheila Quinn for her dedication and commitment to this year’s programme.
