An ambitious project putting people, place, and participation at the centre of cultural life in Edenderry

Creative Places: Edenderry builds on previous work Creative Lives delivered in the area, which brought people together to imagine what a more creative and cultural town would look like, and what steps could be taken to make those ideas a reality. 

We’re working with people of all ages and backgrounds to create a richer, more inclusive, and more cohesive creative community in the town and surrounding areas. We want to provide creative opportunities for everyone: professional artists, community groups, and individuals. The project is being developed collaboratively with and by the people of Edenderry, with community ownership and sustainability at the heart of what we do together.

We run regular creative activities, funding schemes, opportunities for artists, and community celebrations. Everyone is welcome!

Creative Places: Edenderry is supported by The Arts Council / An Comhairle Ealaíon (as part of their national Creative Places programme) in partnership with a steering committee of local stakeholders, including Offaly Arts Office, Creative Edenderry, North Offaly Community Development Network, Edenderry Community Cabin, Edenderry Municipal District Council, and Offaly County Council Library Services.
