Get involved by organising your own event for Limerick Culture Night 2020
Limerick Culture Night 2020 will take place this year on Friday, September 18 so it’s time to start planning events and activities for the Limerick region!
Culture Night is always great fun and offers the perfect opportunity for us as a region to showcase the wealth of culture that Limerick has to offer. Culture Night 2020 is a night to celebrate the cultural, artistic, and creative communities of our city and county by inviting existing and new audiences to view our galleries, museums, workshops, and studios. It allows people to immerse themselves in the culture and community of Limerick.
Never has it been more important for an event like Culture Night 2020 to take place. During these difficult times, an event like this presents the opportunity for our creative community to work in partnership to nurture the cultural life of our region and support our audiences as they adjust to a new social and cultural environment within their communities. It will also boost morale and be a good time for everyone.
In light of the Covid-19 outbreak and the resulting restrictions, some changes must be made to Culture Night for this year, as a result, this year’s event will be smaller in scale with a hybrid programme of digital and physical events.
In planning digital or online events, it is asked that you consider this as an opportunity to reach much larger audiences than you normally would be able to. It is also an opportunity to reach audiences who would normally be excluded from attending a live event, for example, those with very young children, housebound disabled and carers, the elderly, etc.
There’s a growing number of online and offline activities planned for Fri 18 Sep, brought to you by @artscouncil_ie and local authorities across the island.https://t.co/Ga4YCuH6ctpic.twitter.com/abamXpIcEr

In the case of those wishing to host physical events, all live events will need to implement pre-booking and ticketing to manage audience numbers in line with national COVID-19 regulations and guidelines. Larger outdoor event holders will also need to consult with their local garda station.
Events should be free of charge to ensure access for everybody, but it is permissible to collect donations.
If you are part of a club, organisation, or group who would like to organise a Culture Night event, Limerick Culture & Arts Office will be there to support your involvement in this national initiative.
Clubs, organisations, and groups in Limerick wishing to organise a Culture Night event this year, will be supported with advice, promotion, and merchandising by Limerick Tourism, Culture & Arts Office.
They will do this by listing and promoting your event on the National Culture Night website and Limerick.ie. By submitting your event information early and completing their Expression of Interest form they will be able to consider your proposal. They also offer participants free Culture Night merchandise – balloons, badges, t-shirts – to use and distribute on the night at the events organised.
We are confident that the Limerick Culture and Arts community will respond to this call out with enthusiasm and innovation so that Limerick Culture Night 2020 will be one to remember.
