Why We Are Consulting?
Creative Ireland has identified the role of the Local Authority as principally focused on Pillar 2:Enabling Creativity in Every Community. Each Local Authority must produce a five-year strategy to bring coherence to their individual culture-based strategies and to align the work of the different members of the culture team over the coming years.

As part of this process South Dublin County Council (SDCC), has identified a number of Strategic Priorities to shape and influence the Plan over the next 5 years. We would like to invite you to respond to these Strategic Priorities by attending a public consultation workshop
