Play your part in Culture Night in Tipperary

Culture Night

Applications are being invited for events to take place during Culture Night in Tipperary on Friday September 21


Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts.

It will take place on Friday 21st September from 4pm until late. 

Culture Night has grown from a relatively small-scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with some 400,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the island. 

The initiative has captured both the public imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.

Tipperary County Council is now issuing a call for proposals in two categories for Culture Night 2018.

Groups, organisations, schools and/or artists are invited to submit an event to be included in the Culture Night Programme. Funding for events is available. All events must be free of charge to the public.

Artists, curators, and/or creatives based in Tipperary are also invited to submit proposals to this open call for ideas. It is anticipated that one-two Culture Night Commissions will be supported in 2018, subject to available funding.

Please refer to guidelines for further information.  

Only events that are free, open to the public and take place from 4pm until late are eligible to apply.

The information leaflets and application form may be downloaded from or phone the Arts Office at 076-1065000.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 4th July.

Culture Night Tipperary is brought to you by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, in partnership with Tipperary County Council.
