Schools Excellence Fund - Creative Clusters

Creative Clusters is a pilot initiative of the Department of Education and Skills, led by and in partnership with the 21 full-time Teacher Education Centres (ATECI).

What is a Creative Cluster?

A Creative Cluster will typically consist of between three and five schools collaborating on the design, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of an innovative arts and creative learning project which supports them to address a common issue or challenge. For more information please refer to Guidelines: https://www.education.ie/en/Schools-Colleges/Information/Curriculum-and-Syllabus/cap_creative_cluster_guidelines.pdf

(This is a DES link and safe to open)

Applications can be submitted by the deadline of 11 May 2018 to the Education Centre, Tralee FAO Máire Vieux. Detailed information on Creative Clusters and how to apply can be found at:

https://www.education.ie/en/Schools-Colleges/Information/Curriculum-and-Syllabus/creative-clusters.html

PLEASE NOTE:

If my school has applied to the Arts Council to be a Creative School can we also apply to the Creative Clusters initiative?

You are eligible to apply to both initiatives; however, in the event that your application to Creative Schools is successful you will not be eligible to also participate in the Creative Cluster Initiative. This is in order to ensure that as broad a range of schools as possible receive support to develop their capacity in the area of the arts and creativity.

Is there a connection between Creative Schools and Creative Clusters?

Yes. Creative Schools and Creative Clusters are both important initiatives of Creative Youth – A Plan to Enable the Creative Potential of Every Child and Young Person, which was published in December 2017 as part of the Creative Ireland Programme.
