Creative Development

Creative Development is an objective within the Local Community Development Programme, Goal Two, which uses new technology and new media as a tool to engage with communities in Sligo.

Sligo Leader Partnership has worked with community groups such as young people, new communities and people with disabilities using new media, for example: film making, pod casts, VJing/DJing, music/music technology, using computers and the internet.

One of our successful programmes is the New Media Youth Collective, a community based programme for young people using new media and technology. Through the ongoing development work of Sligo Leader Partnership Company it has been established that using creative and innovative methods to engage with all types of groups is a relevant and effective method of engagement.

Creative development is a strong component of Goal Two, intending to increase access to formal and informal education through recreational and cultural development.
