Arts, Culture and Heritage

Our district has a rich and broad culture, heritage and arts offering that is intrinsic to this region and the people who live and work here. In Slieve Gullion, Newry, Crotlieve, the Mournes, Slieve Croob, Rowallane and Downpatrick, there is a rich and unique cultural life that is protected, celebrated and enhanced through groups and individuals who are passionate about the communities that they are part of and do so much to enrich. 

This Arts, Culture & Heritage Strategy creates a foundation upon which the Council’s investment and support of annual programmes and activities can be based - with investment in the arts, culture and heritage critical to rebuilding the sector following the impacts of the Covid-pandemic.   The strategy sets out a vision for the development of our arts, culture and heritage offering within the next five years, and sets out a blueprint to guide and inform how Council will work together with key stakeholders to enhance these sectors whilst supporting our economic growth and social outcomes.
