Creative Schools is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme to enable the creative potential of every child.
This initiative will understand, develop and celebrate the arts and creativity in schools. It will establish a range of collaborative opportunities for schools and will develop and strengthen the relationships between schools and the broader cultural and community infrastructure within which they operate.
Make sure to tune in this weekend to see the journey of a number of schools through the Creative Schools Process.
InterTradeIreland has developed a three-part webinar series to help businesses navigate their way through the key supports that have been put in place in both jurisdictions in response to Covid-19.
Three of the webinars will be specific to a Northern Ireland audience and three specific to companies based in Ireland.
The webinars, delivered by PKF-FPM on behalf of InterTradeIreland, will focus on the detail of the relevant support schemes and nuances that business should be made aware of.

Artist Feature Friday
Each Friday, Creative Spark will be featuring the work of previous Artists in Residence to see what they’ve been getting up to since their time at Creative Spark. This week the first feature is with Omin!
Omin was our inaugural Artist in Residence here in Creative Spark back in 2014. Omin is a graphic artist with a 19 year history rooted in Graffiti with a BA Honours Degree in Visual Communications (DIT). His studio and mural work encapsulates the essence of graffiti with an appreciation for classic letterforms be they deconstructed or verging on the abstract. This approach feeds into his screen printed work. Also exploring the human figure by deconstructing and warping it creating characters with an illustrated quality mixing graphic elements influenced by glitches in everyday use of digital technology.
