What is NAPD The Creative Engagement Programme
The programme is co-funded by the Department of Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Department of Education and Skills. Each year projects are produced in schools ranging from theatre and film through to sculpture and music. A creative engagement happens when a local artist or arts group comes into the school and imparts their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to the students. This partnership has mutual benefits to both artist and school.
The Creative Engagement programme strives to encourage creativity, initiative and expression in our students and to complement curricular learning in the arts , heritage and culture. NAPD envisions an education system energised through the arts and where creativity is a core activity in the post primary curriculum. NAPD is currently developing a partnership with the National Heritage Council. Michael Parsons of the Arts and Culture Committee is a member of the National Heritage Council.
