Culture Night, the annual celebration of culture, creativity and the arts, takes place Friday September 20th 2019. To participate in Culture Night your event has to be free to the public and take place between 4pm-Midnight on Friday September 20th 2019.

Why take part?
Aside from being a fantastic event, Culture Night can have a lasting impact on communities. Culture Night has:

  • Proven to be a wonderful opportunity for new and established organisations/groups/artists to build a profile for themselves and the work they do.
  • Provided a valuable platform to reach new audiences.
  • Made it easier for people to play a role in their local cultural scene.
  • Helped create a sense of community and belonging.
  • Provided opportunities for networking between local organisations, groups and artists.

Events can range from something as simple as hosting a storytelling event, organising an exhibition, to more complex events such as concerts, dance performances or parades, all of which reflect the diversity of culture in County Cork.

What role will Cork County Council Arts Office play?
The Arts Office will compile all information for the countywide programme. We are here to help and will provide a targeted PR campaign to ensure public awareness of these events at a local, regional and national level as well as marketing support through the Culture Night Cork County website, National Culture Night website, social media, print programme and distribution.
