Tania Banotti is the Director of the Creative Ireland Programme. Creative Ireland is a 5 year ‘all-of-government programme’ involving many Irish government Ministries, state agencies, local authorities, NGOs, communities and individuals.
The vision of the Creative Ireland Programmes is of a country where creativity is at the heart of public policy; where everyone has the opportunity to realise their full creative potential; an Ireland where participation in cultural and creative opportunity promotes the wellbeing of the individual, the community and the nation at large.
Through the Creative Ireland Programme, Ireland is now among the first countries in the world to prioritise creativity as vital to our personal and collective wellbeing and success. The programme covers:
- Creative Youth – enabling the creative potential of every child
- Creative Communities – a local programme with all 31 local authorities which includes a creativity in older age strand.
- Creative Industries
- Creative Health and wellbeing
- Creative Climate Action
