Expressions of Interest invited

Kildare County Council Arts Service are pleased to confirm that Culture Night will take place on Friday 18th September 2020 from 4pm till late and are looking for expressions of interest to participate.  Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts.  On that night venues and events are available to the public free of charge.

It seems likely that some COVID 19 restrictions will be in place and a re-imagined Culture Night programme will be offered.  We expect that this will take the form of experimental physical events (if and where possible, in line with government guidelines) alongside virtual programming and presentation of artist commissions.  Although challenging, we hope Culture Night will offer the opportunity to explore our potential for social and cultural solidarity and also an exercise of re-socializing our audiences, our artists, our hosts, ourselves.

Priority will be given to projects of high artistic ambition, with cognisance for inclusivity, sustainability and accessibility, in line with the Arts Council Equality, Human Rights and Diversity Policy.  We are also committed to projects that Pay the Artist.

For further information on how to register your interest, or to receive more information please contact Culture Night Kildare Curator, Federica Petronilli, at

The deadline to be considered for the County Kildare programme is Saturday 20th June 20205pm.
