Culture Night Kilkenny Call For Applications for Funding

2 mins read

Culture Night 2024 will be taking place on the 20th September all around the country from 4pm until late!

The Kilkenny Arts Office in association with the Arts Council are actively planning towards Culture Night Kilkenny 2024 and are looking forward to an exciting line-up of events. We are issuing an Open Call for funding towards the running costs of events taking place in Co. Kilkenny. This year Kilkenny City is designated as a night time economy pilot city. Under the Kilkenny City Night Time Economy Action Plan 2024-2025, additional funding has been provided this year to ensure Culture Night can facilitate more inclusive and innovative late-night arts events that are suitable for all ages.

Please note that if you are planning an event for Culture Night you are responsible for securing your own venue/space for your event. The Arts Office does not arrange venues for events. We provide support through funding, marketing and promotion. This involves  allocating funding, uploading event information onto the official Culture Night Website, creation of a printed brochure and posters to be dispatched around the County. Promotion in local press, radio and social media.
