Cruinniu na nÓg

Join us on June 13th for  Cruinniú na nÓg

We are thrilled to have such an exciting range of free online activities for children and young people for Cruinniu na nÓg.

Rosie O'Regan from BrokenCrow Theatre Company has crafted her very own story poem! 'Little Bird' is an early years piece made especially for springtime that borrows from an old song that is known and loved by many.

Why not get creative with an Art workshop. Using nature and everyday materials for inspiration and hosted by our experienced artists these workshops are suitable for all ages!

Maybe colour some of our collection works or get yourself hooked on our online Jigsaws with works from the Crawford Art Gallery collection. No booking required. Suitable for all.

Ireland is the first, and only country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18. 

Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people.
