Creative Clusters

Dear Principal
The Department of Education & Skills are pleased to announce that the closing date for receipt of applications for the Creative Clusters Initiative has been extended to Friday 26th of June 2020. 
Each Creative Cluster will receive grant funding of €3,000 per school over a two-year period to implement their project in the 2020–2022 school years (e.g. a cluster of 3 schools would receive €9,000 over two years while a cluster of 5 schools would receive €15,000 over two years). 
Clusters will receive 50% of the total grant funding in Year 1, with the second 50% being provided in Year 2. In addition, but separate to the grant funding, all successful clusters are further supported with: A fully paid Creative Cluster Facilitator; paid Teacher Substitution to attend training and meetings; room hire, travel & subsistence.

Schools can apply as part of a cluster which may be an existing network of schools. 
A school nearing the end of year 2 of an existing Creative Cluster can reapply to be in a new cluster where the other schools in the new cluster have not participated before. 
Schools nearing the end of 2 years with Creative Schools are eligible to apply. 
The local Teacher Education Centre will have a key role in identifying and supporting a Creative Cluster for their local area. 
A total of 21 Creative Clusters will be selected nationally - One successful Creative Cluster per Education Centre. 
Applications should be emailed to via the attached application form.  Any queries, please contact or email Arts in Education Administration
