Creative Clusters 2022

Minister Foley invites applications from schools for funding to work together on the Creative Clusters 2022 Initiative

The Department of Education is pleased to announce the opening of a new round of Creative Clusters (Press Release).  The deadline for receipt of applications is 13th May 2022.

Each Creative Cluster will receive grant funding of €3,000 per school over a two-year period to implement their project in the 2022–2024 school years (e.g. a cluster of 3 schools would receive €9,000 over two years while a cluster of 5 schools would receive €15,000 over two years). Clusters will receive 50% of the total grant funding in Year 1, with the second 50% being provided in Year 2.  In addition, but separate to the grant funding, all successful clusters are further supported with: A fully paid Creative Cluster Facilitator; paid Teacher Substitution to attend training and meetings; room hire, travel & subsistence

Schools can apply as part of a cluster which may be an existing network of schools.

A school nearing the end of year 2 of an existing Creative Cluster can reapply to be in a new cluster where the other schools in the new cluster have not participated before.

Schools nearing the end of 2 years with Creative Schools are eligible to apply.

The local Teacher Education Support Centre will have a key role in identifying and supporting a Creative Cluster for their local area.

A total of 21 Creative Clusters will be selected nationally - One successful Creative Cluster per Education Support Centre.
