Creative Ireland, the creative communications charity that has helped hundreds of thousands of Irish people get their creative work published, is giving away €2,000 worth of digital artworks and books to people who share their interests.
It is one of a number of initiatives Creative Ireland has launched to support Irish creative communities, including a €1 million donation to the National Library of Ireland (NLI), and the sale of books and a special edition of the Irish Times, which has been available since March.
The initiative, dubbed Creative Pass, was launched in conjunction with the NLI to support people in the digital creative community, and is part of the charity’s broader efforts to help those in the public sector.
The €2.5 million donation will be shared with Creative Ireland and the NLLI, and Creative Ireland is offering the first £250,000 of proceeds to the NLSI to support the library’s digital library service.
Creative Pass will be available through Creative Ireland for a limited time.
For the first time, Creative Ireland will offer the €2 million to the Irish public in one lump sum.
Creatives will be eligible for a one-time gift of €2m when they open a Creative Pass account.
This will cover the cost of their first Creative Pass purchase, and will also include the costs of creating an art portfolio for them and other projects.
Creativity Pass will also be available for artists to use as gifts for their next Creative Pass acquisition.
In addition to the books and art, Creative Pass will offer artists the opportunity to receive a digital portfolio that will be used to promote their projects, as well as other gifts from the charity.
The NLI has launched a new Creative Pass page to allow people to register for Creative Pass.
This year Creative Ireland also launched the Creative Ireland Creative Library, which is a collection of books, articles, and videos by Irish creatives.
In October Creative Ireland launched a series of ‘digital-only’ exhibitions at the NPLI, which are available for public viewing.
These exhibitions, called ‘Digital Stories’ and ‘Digital Films’, have been curated by Irish artists and writers and feature creative works that have been made in digital format.
The digital-only exhibitions will also feature artworks by artists who have worked on digital projects.
The exhibition catalogue, titled Digital Stories, features work by Irish writers, photographers, musicians, and filmmakers.
The gallery also includes work by an Irish artist and artist of African heritage, which was previously shown at the National Art Gallery.
The Digital Films exhibition features work from Irish filmmakers, including David Ahern, who has worked on many digital projects, including his work on The Last Night.
It was also previously shown in the NFLI.
Artwork that has been digitally made is also available in the Digital Stories collection.
In a statement, Creative Minister Leo Varadkar said:The NELI is one place where the creativity of people in Ireland is nurtured and rewarded.
These initiatives demonstrate that creative people from across the world are coming together and making a difference.
It’s a great day for Ireland and our country, and a great opportunity to give a hand to those in need.
Creatures are just one aspect of the NEL.
In the next six months, the NELS Digital Collections will launch a range of exhibitions at a range the NLE and NLI can support, including the installation of a digital map of the island of Ireland and a digital archive of more than 30,000 historical documents.
Creature collections are part of a broader programme of programmes supported by the NIL and NEL, which aims to support more than 60,000 local and community-based charities.
Creators will be able to buy digital art, digital content, books, books and more from the Nels collections and can use the proceeds to help local charities.NELI Chairman and Chief Executive, John O’Neill, said:This is a great initiative to help the creative community of Ireland.
The NEL is an extraordinary organisation and we want to make sure that all our staff and volunteers are working to help people in our communities in the future.
Creativacity Ireland is committed to working in partnership with the community to help artists and creative people get creative.
The partnership with Creative Pass is the first of its kind in Ireland and we are excited to be supporting the NILS digital library.
We are pleased to be working with such a talented and creative community.
The launch of the digital collection was also attended by Irish Government Minister for Arts and Heritage, Tourism and Sport, Conor Murphy, and NELS Director of Creative Innovation, David O’Brien.
The Minister also announced that he has set up a new Irish Government digital collection.
