Cruinniú Inclusive

  • Programme of events

There is no end to the richness and potential of creativity for children and young people.

Ireland recognises the rights of every child and young person, enshrined in Irish law and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), including the right to a healthy and safe environment, education, play and participation in the arts and culture.

In Creative Ireland we believe that creativity allows young people a myriad of opportunities to express themselves and approach the world in a new way. From birth, young children are active, competent and creative individuals and members of society, with their own distinctive interests, experiences, challenges and points of view.

Some of the inclusive events happening around the country include;

Ennis, Co. Clare
