Small Towns Big Ideas Information Session – Ballinasloe
Small Towns Big Ideas is a Galway 2020 programme which celebrates ‘Meitheal’– the ancient Irish tradition of coming together for a common purpose, working together to ensure that all succeed in achieving a shared goal.
Galway 2020 is now seeking Expressions of Interest from communities who wish to develop a project for Round 2 of the Small Towns Big Ideas programme. Applications to Small Towns Big Ideas are invited from community and voluntary organisations, cultural organisations, heritage groups, festival bodies, artist collectives, schools, sports bodies, and other such groups.
Interested groups are asked to create projects that demonstrate collaboration, ambition, creativity, community involvement, European dimension and of course, respond to the core themes of Galway 2020. Projects can respond to one, two or all of the core themes of Landscape, Language and Migration.
Funding of €200,000 will be awarded by Galway 2020 across the successful community groups to create and deliver thrilling projects that could transform their communities in 2020. The application process opens on 2 April and the deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is 5pm on 10 May.
We will be holding an information session at Ballinasloe Library on Tuesday 16 April at 7pm to answer any questions potential applicants may have.
