Creativity at Home

Creativity at Home

Now that more of our time will be spent at home, it is a great opportunity to get creative or pick up an old hobby.

Doing something creative can help improve your mood and learn new skills, which is a great way of looking after your mental wellbeing.

During this time Creative Ireland is offering a selection of free creative resources online across Ireland to help you #CreateAtHome.

From museums and galleries to Irish artists and organisations, there are so many ways for you to get creative and keep your mind active while isolating.

It can be something simple such as:
