Culture Night 2022 will take place this year on Friday 23rd September, so it’s time to start planning our events and activities for the Limerick region! Limerick Arts Office invite arts and cultural organisations to submit proposals for events or collaborations that could be hosted individually or as part of a series of culture hubs across the city and county, in association with one or more other groups.

Culture Night is always great fun and offers the perfect opportunity for us as a region to showcase the wealth of culture that Limerick has to offer. It is a night to celebrate the cultural, artistic and creative communities of our city and county by inviting existing and new audiences into our galleries, museums, workshops and studios.

We are confident that the Limerick Culture and Arts community will respond to this call out with enthusiasm and innovation and Culture Night 2022 will be one to remember.

Expressions of interest for grant support are requested as part of the application form. The average grant for Culture Night is €150 and approximately 40-60 events will be supported. It may not be possible to accommodate all requests for support should applicants exceed this. In exceptional circumstances a larger grant may be made where the applicant demonstrates exceptional need.


One of the key aspects of Culture Night is that events are free of charge to ensure that activities and venues are accessible to all members of the public.

All current relevant COVID-19 government safety guidelines MUST be adhered to. It is the responsibility of the event organisers to ensure compliance with these regulations.
