Creative Associate Opportunity

Would you like to be a part of a Creative Associate team?



Creative Associates are artists, creative practitioners and/or educators with an understanding of the arts and creativity and its potential to transform the lives of children and young people. Creative Associates will match the needs of schools to arts and creative opportunities in their locality. They will identify potential areas for improvement and will inspire, energise and drive schools forward in addressing these. Through this pioneering initiative Creative Associates will have the chance to shape the place of the arts and creativity in Irish schools.

 Artist Creative Associates will be engaged by the Arts Council and can be individual artists/creative practitioners or named individuals employed by arts and cultural sector organisations.
