Kerry Local Creative Youth Partnership at Kerry Education and Training Board reaches out to community organisations that support youth creativity in Kerry.
Now, the Kerry Education and Training Board has announced two new strands of funding available to organisations, communities, youth groups, and after-school groups who wish to enhance the range, volume and impact that creative people such as artists/designers/craft-makers/creative industry professionals can make in working with young people.
Youth Led Projects of Creativity
Applications are being sought for youth led projects that support youth creativity in Kerry. Projects must be realised in 2020.
Kerry Education and Training Board is also seeking expressions of interest from professional organisations in Kerry who wish to develop a collaboration at local level with Kerry Local Creative Youth Partnership.
