White Logo Stay Connected   Header Red   Environmental Awareness News   Community Paint Grant Scheme For Community Groups, Sports Clubs and Schools Paint Grant We are thrilled to announce the return of the Community Paint Grant Scheme, which is now open for applications. Community groups, sports clubs and schools in Cork can apply for up to 25litres of upcycled ‘Relove Paint’, the majority of which is indoor paint, for their organisation. Relove Paint is provided by three social enterprises in Cork, Cycle Sense, IRD Duhallow Furniture Revamp and Northside Community Enterprises (NCE). This initiative aims to support local groups and organisations in beautifying their public spaces through the power of upcycled paint. Why not revitalise a tired meeting room, brighten up the interior of your hall or give your kitchen, dressing rooms or classrooms a well deserved lick of paint. Deadline for applications is Friday 17th May. This initiative is funded by Cork County Council and Cork City Council.

Successful schools select 12 students who will receive an intensive 2-day workshop on-site, in their school, from Createschool. The workshops will help develop their skills to create their own short one-minute film or films that will create awareness among their peers in their selected environmental issue. The workshop includes ideas generation, script writing, rehearsing, filming, production and editing.  Students will present their film to a panel of judges at a county awards ceremony in Spring 2024. One winner will be selected to represent Cork County in the national awards ceremony in May 2025. All costs for the workshop facilitation will be covered by Cork County Council and interested schools are invited to apply by 5pm on Friday 10th May 2024.  Please note that we expect the demand to exceed the number of places available, and we may have to allocate on a first come first served bases, so we recommend applying as soon as possible.
