Creative Europe Desk (CED) Ireland – Culture Office

Creative Europe Desks operate in the EU Member States and in most of the other countries taking part in the Creative Europe programme. Their role is to promote the programme at local, regional and national level. The Creative Europe programme comprises two sub-programmes: the Culture Sub-programme aimed at the cultural and creative sectors; the Media Sub-Programme aimed at the audiovisual sector and in addition a Cross-sectoral strand.

For information and advice on the Media Sub–programme contact the CED Ireland – Media Offices in either Dublin or Galway.

The CED Ireland Culture Office aims to facilitate the participation in the Culture Sub-programme for the widest number of cultural professionals and operators as possible.

The culture office is co-funded by the European Commission and the Arts Council. Although based at the Arts Council the priorities and objectives of the work programme are defined by the Commission.

What do we do?

The CED Ireland – Culture Office provides practical information, advice and technical assistance and support to those applying for funding under the EU Creative Europe Culture sub-programme 2014–2020.

We do this by:

  • providing assistance to people applying for funding through the Creative Europe Culture Sub-Programme 2014-2020;
  • hosting information seminars and networking events throughout the year assisting people to work trans-nationally across Europe and to establish connections and partnerships;
  • helping interested parties engage in collaborative projects with colleagues elsewhere in Europe and beyond.
