About

A Day of Youthful Creativity

Ireland is the first, and only, country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18. Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg took place on 23rd June 2018 with over 500 events taking place in cities, towns and villages across the country. The second outing on 15th June 2019 proved to be even more successful with over 750 free creative events taking place nationwide. In partnership with the 31 Local Authorities and supported by RTÉ, thousands of parents, families and young people took part in a wide range of fun, free, creative activities; from graffiti art workshops to stop-motion animation, robot-making to shield-making workshops!

Our Ambassadors

For Cruinniú na nÓg 2019, we were delighted to announce the appointment of three young Cruinniú ambassadors, each of whom are creative heroes and were advocates both for the event itself and for the participation of children and young people in creative activities.
