Let’s take part in Culture Night

Celebrating themes of openness, discovery, celebration and belonging, Culture Night 2021 will take place on Friday, September 17.

Organisers have launched an ‘Open Call’ inviting organisations and individuals interested in participating to log onto culturenight.ie/get-involved/ and share their ‘Expressions of Interest’ with their Local Authority Arts Office.

The annual Culture Night is a national moment - an all-island public event celebrating the richness and diversity of culture, creativity and the arts in Ireland today, connecting people to cultural activities at a local and national level. It spans across a sectoral range of culture, arts, heritage, education, hospitality, tourism, health and commercial and corporate enterprise. A broad expanse of people, organisations, venues and institutions help make it happen each year including artists, performing groups, galleries, museums, sports clubs, libraries, arts centres, craft workers, studios and workshops, theatres, schools, community groups, local authorities, government departments, state agencies and public bodies, transport companies, universities, shops and many more.

All participants must be registered through the relevant Arts Office/local authority or the national coordinator and uploaded to the national programme/website. Participation is through your local Arts Office which oversees the organisation of the programme of events in each county. Full registration details are available on www.culturenight.ie.
