Leitrim Creative Ireland - Creative Sector Jobs Stimulus Programme

As part of Leitrim County Council’s Creative Ireland programme and arising from specific funding provided through the Government Jobs Stimulus Package, Leitrim County Council has developed three new programmes to support the sector and those working in it. The closing date for all three programmes is Friday 16th October.


Leitrim Creative Sector Internship Programme

The Leitrim Creative Sector Internship Programme offers Leitrim based Arts & Culture Organisations to opportunity to employ an intern for 2 days per week for 20 weeks at a rate of €100.00 per day. The programme is designed to provide an early career creative sector practitioner with the opportunity to gain valuable experience at an important time in their development. To take part in the scheme, an organisation must have the capacity to provide a valuable learning environment for the intern, have identifed the areas the intern would work in, and to undertake recruitment and commence the employment of the intern within six months.

Please note that the programme is designed to support early career and aspiring professionals in the Culture & Creativity Sector seeking opportunities to expand their knowledge and expertise and gain valuable expertise. This particular programme is not designed to support practitioners who had established careers in the sector before the current restrictions came into force and are likely to return to those careers afterwards.

Leitrim Creative Sector Co-Support Programme

The Co-Support Programme provides grants to Leitrim based professional practitioners in the culture and creativity sector to avail of any service provided by another Leitrim practitioner that will demonstrably contribute to the applicant’s practice, enhance their work, or assist in the promotion of their work.

Such services could include but are not by any means limited to:
-A writer or visual artist with the requisite skills writing biographies, and describing your practice;
-A filmmaker producing a short video of your band or a video profile of a visual artist and their work;
-A theatre practitioner working with a musician to develop their stage skills etc.
-A theatre company workshopping or producing a playwright’s work.
-Or any other tangible purpose that uses one person’s skills to contribute to another’s practice

The value of an award rises to a maximum of €2,000.  While there is no fixed number of awards, there is generally a larger number of lesser value awards and a small number of maximum value ones. The quantity and value of awards will depend on available resources, number of applicants and the quality of applications.

While the person recieving the benefit or service is the applicant, we are also accepting details of those that wish to put themselves forward as providing services to others.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 16th October.

Leitrim County Council Culture & Creativity Strategy 2018 - 2022

The vision of Creative Ireland is that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to fully realise his or her creative potential. The Creative Ireland Vision for Leitrim is to nurture and foster creative expression in all its diversity; embrace and welcome new ideas; and create the conditions to help turn those ideas into reality and embed creativity into all aspects of the social, economic and cultural life of Leitrim. The new strategy sets out the priorities to achieve that objective in a comprehensive plan and as well as achieving that under the Creative Ireland programme, a central purpose of the strategy is to act as guidance and a key influencer in the development of all cultural policies and corporate planning developed during the tenure of the Creative Ireland programme.
