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, a Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. For 2021, we are joining forces again with our colleagues in Monaghan County Council and Local Arts in Education Partnership to deliver a diverse online programme of activities for children and young people to engage in.
Cruinniú events are free for everyone of course. Some can be enjoyed by all via Cavan Monaghan Creative Channel on YouTube. The events listed below must be PRE-BOOKED so scroll through and make a plan to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg 2021 with us!
Following Covid guidelines, participants will be limited to 12 and workshops will take place outdoors. Percussionist Peter Crann from We Drum Ireland has been introducing people of all ages and abilities to the fascinating world of percussion for over 20 years. He brings a huge collection of drums from around the world and will have participants playing an infectious piece of Samba drumming all together by the end of the fast-moving and humorous workshop.
Airfield Estate have set a challenge to get the country knitting for Cruinniú na nÓg. Cavan and Monaghan Libraries are promoting this fantastic event by giving out 50 knitting kits to children living in counties Cavan and Monaghan. All that we ask is for children to sign up to the knitting webinar taking place on the 12th June - Booking required here
