Numerous events are to take place in Clare this Saturday as part of Cruinniú na nÓg.

By hosting the national day of free creativity for children and young people across the country, Ireland is the only country in the world to have such an occasion.

Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. It is supported by Creative Ireland Clare and is administered by Clare County Council.

Cruinniú is a great component of the already well-established annual programme of activities organized by the Library and Arts Service for children and young adults. Recognising the cultural vibrancy in the county, Clare County Council has mobilised a strong Creative Ireland Culture Team to deliver the programme.

Helen Walsh, Clare County Library is the Creative Ireland Coordinator and Sheila Quinn is the curator of the programme. Artists and creative practitioners have been very busy working with young people to produce 24 events for Cruinniú na nÓg 2021 which will be hosted online on June 12th.

Access to the diverse programme can be sourced from the Creative Ireland Clare Facebook Page and www.clarelibrary.ie.

The Magic of the Sea, an artistic event presented by children from Fanore National School is among the highlights of the day. It incorporates an engaging mix of narration, music, song, poetry, and composition.

Maeve Stone will engage children on themes of climate adaptation and community resilience during ‘Rising Tide’. Children were invited to meet Maeve on Lahinch Beach on May 29th, they collected a special and symbolic object: a handmade ceramic boat.

They have been asked to use the boat to express their hopes for the future, for themselves, their families, and their communities. They can do this by decorating the boat and using it to hold a drawing, piece of writing, or object. They return to Lahinch last Saturday, when the boats were laid on the beach to spell out a message of hope. A video of the project will be shown this Saturday.
