Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 18th September 2015. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including the National Cultural Institutions, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and everything is available free of charge.
Culture Night has grown from a relatively small scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with some 350,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the country. The initiative has captured both the public imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.
-Encourages more people to visit cultural venues and experience culture in their locality
-Reminds us all about the fantastic cultural facilities and resources that we have locally and nationally
-Raises the profile of cultural organisations, activities and facilities
-Encourages people to try new things and to get into the habit of going more often to cultural venues and activities in their locality
-Makes it easier for people to play a role in their local cultural scene
-Helps create a sense of community and belonging
Who makes Culture Night happen?
Culture Night happens because many people share a vision and enthusiasm for enjoying, celebrating and promoting creativity and culture. The following list gives a taste of the wide range of people and institutions that make it happen across Ireland:
the public, artists, performing groups, galleries, museums, sports clubs, libraries, arts centres, craft workers, studios and workshops, theatres, public spaces, broadcasters, schools, community groups, local authorities, Government Departments, state agencies and public bodies, transport companies, universities, shops and many more!
On Friday 18th September, 36 regions, towns and cities around Ireland will buzz with live performances as Ireland’s most popular cultural extravaganza returns for 2015.
There will be a diverse mix of FREE events with something to suit every age and interest from live music to interactive tours in the more than 900 venues participating around the country, with each county showcasing the very best of its cultural talents and creativity. Building on last year’s estimated 350,000, participants record crowds are expected for 2015 as the country connects for this one night a year in a national movement of exploration, experience and enjoyment. An incredible blend of cultural events will take place with museums, galleries, cathedrals, studios, observatories, libraries, parks, government buildings and theatres in each corner of the country opening late to create an inimitable celebratory night-time atmosphere.
Culture Night is brought to you by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in partnership with the regional arts offices, local authorities and other cultural organisations throughout the island of Ireland.
