The three-year programme is developed for communities around the country that have not received sustained investment in the arts sector.

The project will be entirely community-lead, with locals being given the responsibility to develop a three-year programme of events and activities – using the investment of 450-thousand euro.

Tuam Creative Places Ireland will be officially launched on Tuesday evening at 6:30 at the Ard Ri House Hotel – with a special performance from local musician, Little John Nee.
