The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD recently announced almost €200,000 in funding for Local Authorities across the country to help them stage events for Culture Night 2017.
Cork County Council is to receive €10,000 to support their events which will be held on Friday 22nd September 2017.
Culture Night continues to be one of the most successful and magical evenings in the calendar where venues open their doors free of charge and the streets are filled with spectacular performances of culture and creativity. The evening dovetails with the Creative Ireland Programme which aims to increase access to and participation in cultural activity in every part of County Cork.
Culture Night offers us all an opportunity to experience part of our unique, vibrant and increasingly diverse cultural offering. Cork County Council will announce its full programme of events for Culture Night shortly. Watch this space!
