About the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme in Ireland.

Creative Europe Desk Ireland has two specialist MEDIA information offices, one based in Dublin and one in Galway. We offer comprehensive information on the European Union’s Creative Europe Programme and specifically the MEDIA sub-programme.
We provide advice, support and information on Creative Europe funding support for the audiovisual industries including film, television and games. You can meet with us in one-to-one advice sessions or by coming along to the events we organise throughout the year. We are also available to respond to any queries you have about the programme over the phone and on email.
The Creative Europe Desk MEDIA Office Galway serves as a regional MEDIA office and also has a remit to provide information and services as Gaeilge to the growing Irish language audio-visual community.
