Kildare Arts Plan Review & New 5 Year Strategy: We Want To Hear From You

Kildare County Council is currently reviewing '(Continue to) Make Inroads: An Arts Development Plan for Kildare Local Authorities 2012-2106 and is planning a new arts strategy for 2017-2021.

At the heart of our last plan, were 5 key words - curate, mentor, broker, respond & inspire - words that we felt described how the Arts Service interact with and support the citizens of Co Kildare and beyond.

You can  view a copy of the previous arts plan in this link or a hard copy is available on request 

We are interested in hearing your thoughts on the previous plan and programme of work and where we should go from here.  We work within the art forms listed under the Arts Act 2003*. 

If you are a professional artist, amateur or emerging artists, arts organisation, community art group, or have a general interest in the arts and cultural development in the county, we would like to hear from you. 

We are particularly interested in hearing from

  • individuals or groups who attended any of our professional development programmes or workshops
  • individuals or groups who participated in our programmes including Youth Arts, Arts and Health, Arts in Education, Culture Night, Kildare Readers Festival
  • individuals or groups who have applied for grant aid and award opportunities in the last
  • partner organisations
  • individuals who have not engaged with our services, but would like to in the future

* Under the Arts Act 2003, “Arts” means any creative or interpretative expression (whether traditional or contemporary) in whatever form, and includes, in particular, visual arts, theatre, literature, music, dance, opera, film, circus and architecture, and includes any medium when used for those purposes
