The 9th Annual Creative Engagement Exhibition.

The 9th Annual Creative Engagement Exhibition will be held online March 3-5.  It will be formally opened by NAPD Director Paul Crone, 9.30 March 3rd.

Creative Engagement is the longest-running arts in education programme in second-level schools in Ireland. It is an initiative of the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals. The programme is part of the Creative Youth initiative which is Pillar 1 of Creative Ireland.

The event represents an important landmark in the calendar for educationalists and artists in the education sector, where schools exhibit the wide range of arts in the programme and display best practice in arts provision for young people. Against a background of a pandemic and lockdowns, the resilience of students, teachers and artists is manifest and celebrated in the exhibition.

This year again NAPD Creative Engagement has moved online to ensure accessibility for all audience members as per government guidelines.   The programme has been supported by grant funding from the Department of Education and the Department of Tourism Culture Arts Gaeltacht Media and their forerunners since 2005.
