The Creative Ireland programme is a five-year all-of-Government initiative, from 2017 to 2022, to place creativity at the centre of public policy. It is guided by a vision that every person in Ireland will have the opportunity to realise their full creative potential. Limerick has its own Creative Ireland Strategy and initiatives.
