Creative Schools Week 2021

Online, Monday 10th May - Friday 14th May

This year’s theme ‘Brave New Future’ was chosen through consultation with children and young people across a selection of Creative Schools.

Creative Schools Week includes both In-School Celebrations and Online Celebrations.

We invite all schools in Ireland to celebrate the arts and creativity from 10–14 May, 2021. Resources will be sent to every school in the country in April, with ideas on how any school can be a part of Creative Schools Week in your own way.

The week will also include an Online Celebration showcasing the work of schools who have participated in Creative Schools and Creative Clusters initiatives since 2018. The Online Celebration will also include workshops, interviews and features across a range of different artists and organisations.

Mark your school calendars to include Creative Schools Week 10–14 May, 2021.

Monday 10th May - Friday 14th May
