Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) has become the 7th region to launch a Local Creative Youth Partnership (LCYP) in association with the Creative Ireland Programme. The LCYP brings together resources to develop and provide out-of-school creative activities for children and young people that complement and work with the formal school settings in a non-mainstream manner.
The objective is to create programmes that respond to the needs, interests, and experiences of young people in ‘out of school’ settings, with a particular focus on those who are marginalised or experience disadvantage to support them to act as change agents within their local communities. The target age range for Cavan and Monaghan LCYP focuses on young people aged 0-24 years.
CMETB’s Cavan Monaghan Local Creative Youth Partnership is delighted to launch a new Creative Youth Grant Scheme for young people in counties Cavan & Monaghan. The Grant scheme is open to providers, organisations, communities, and groups that maximise participation and minimise barriers to creative engagement in Cavan & Monaghan in consultation with young people in the target age range.
The objective is to create programmes that respond to the needs, interests, and experiences of young people in ‘out of school’ settings, with a particular focus on those who are seldom heard, marginalised or experience disadvantage to support them to act as change agents within their local communities. Applications can be made for projects which support young people’s engagement with a wide range of art forms. This could include, for example, visual arts, theatre, literature and creative writing, music, dance, opera, film, circus, street art and spectacle, architecture, and design, as well as other types of cultural and creative activities involving heritage and the environment, STEAM, and digital creativity.
Applications must clearly outline the benefits to young people and highlight how you will engage professional artists/designers/craftmakers or creative industry professionals to help deliver the project.
The closing date for submission of applications is 5pm on Thursday 05 October 2023.
