Creative Ireland is a five-year Programme which connects people, creativity and wellbeing which worked with local government to carry out the Creative Communities initiative. It's aim: to deploy creativity as a strategy for wellbeing, social cohesion and economic success.

This interim review examined the effectiveness to date of Creative Communities in embedding creativity within public policy at local level, and in engaging creativity as a strategy for wellbeing, social cohesion and economic development. The review also explored how delivery in collaboration with local authorities could be optimised in the future.
